On Tuesday (November 15), the Las Vegas Metro Police Department arrested rapper Blueface, born Johnathan Porter, on a warrant for attempted murder with the use of a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm into an occupied structure. A statement from the LVMPD states that the charges stem from an October 8 shooting.
Pitchfork has reached out to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department and Blueface’s representatives for comment.
In February, Blueface was arrested for gun possession in California following a traffic stop. In 2021, he was wanted by the police after being caught on camera attacking a bouncer at a California club who allegedly denied him entry without showing ID.
In 2019, Blueface was charged with one felony count of carrying a loaded handgun (on his person or in a vehicle) without registration. The charge was eventually dropped in October of that year.
