Inglewood, CA – A 19-year-old teenager has been arrested as the suspected shooter that killed Kid Cali, KTLA reports.
LAPD announced the arrest of Kenny Birdine today (September 13), but records show Birdine was taken into police custody Saturday (September 10).
He is reportedly facing a first-degree murder charge and is being held on a bond of just over $3 million.
Police say the incident was gang-related and are not releasing any more details at this time.
Kid Cali was killed last month at a Granada Hills pool party when he was reportedly shot six times. Two other people were also wounded in the gunfire, but survived. The up-and-coming rapper was once signed to DeSean Jackson’s Jaccpot Records and worked with Skippa Da Flippa, Nipsey Hussle and Mozzy.
