The L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. raided YG’s Hollywood Hills home in connection with a shooting involving a vehicle registered to the rapper.
Sheriff’s sources tell TMZ that the house is leased by YG, but he was not detained or even present during the raid. Deputies obtained a search warrant in connection with a deadly police shootout in Compton earlier this month.
One person on the scene was arrested for a weapons charge and several others were handcuffed and placed in patrol cars while deputies searched the house.
The raid stems from a July 3 incident where shots were fired from inside a black Cadillac Escalade, striking a deputy. An innocent bystander was killed during the crossfire between police and the shooter, leading to a high-speed chase.
The Escalade was registered to YG, who has denied that he was present at the time of the shooting. “I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood,” he said. “I was there until after midnight on the 4th of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened.”
