Yesterday, up and coming New York rapper Pop Smoke was killed in what was believed to be a home invasion, but new reports claim that his death was a result of a potential targeted hit.

According to TMZ, in recently released surveillance footage, four men are seen approaching the house around 4:30a and sneaking around the back of the residence. Within three to four minutes after the men entered the house, they exited the house through the front door.

Initially, the incident was thought to be a robbery because the rapper had previously taken to Instagram to show off gifts he received and accidentally showed his address in the posts.  After police further investigated, they found that this may have been a planned attack.

Pop Smoke was the only person struck in the encounter as was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead. He was 20 years old.

Rest In Peace, Smoke.
