Rapper Blueface arrested for attempted murder

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) released a statement on the arrest of rapper Blueface, in connection to a shooting that took place in October.

The 25-year-old artist — real name is Johnathan Porter — was apprehended on Tuesday (Nov. 15)  “outside a business in the 300 block of Hughes Center Drive” in Las Vegas, and was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on warrants for attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm at/into an occupied structure. The charges against Porter stem from a shooting that took place near S. Las Vegas Blvd. and Sunset Road in Las Vegas on Oct. 8.  In February 2022, Blueface was also arrested at a traffic stop in Hollywood for gun possession.

Blueface released the mixtape Famous Cryp in 2018, followed by his debut Find the Beat in 2020, featuring Gunna, Lil Baby, Polo G, DaBaby, and Ambjaay, and more.
