Police searched the home of the rapper YG, who famously wrote and performed the song "FDT" (Fuck Donald Trump), in connection with a deputy-involved shooting. As Breitbart reports:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities searched the Los Angeles-area home of rapper YG on Thursday in connection with a police shooting in Compton that killed a bystander earlier this month.

Deputy Marvin Crowder, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, said the rapper, whose real name is Keenon Jackson, has not been implicated in the shooting and was not home at the time of the search Thursday...

The fatal shooting occurred July 3 after deputies tried to pull over a Cadillac Escalade — a company car registered to Jackson — in Compton because they believed the motorist was driving recklessly and under the influence.

An occupant fired an assault rifle at the deputies multiple times, who shot back at two separate locations, officials said. A sheriff’s helicopter tracked the Escalade to Inglewood, where an occupant from the vehicle’s passenger side fired at it. The suspects then abandoned the SUV and ran away.


Though Jackson hasn't yet been directly implicated in the shooting, the involvement of his vehicle certainly raise serious questions.
