Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department descended on a large home in the 1600 block of Blue Jay Way before 10 a.m. Thursday. YG, who is leasing the home, was not there when detectives arrived.
Helicopter footage from SKY2 showed detectives walking in through a shattered glass door and several cars in the circular driveway, including a red sports car that had been covered with a white sheet. It’s not clear why the vehicle was covered.
One man, identified as 29-year-old Tyquan Williams, was arrested on a weapons charge, the sheriff’s department said. Several more people were detained.
The search was conducted in connection with a pursuit and deadly shootout with deputies on July 3. The suspects led deputies in a chase from Compton into Inglewood that turned into a running gun battle. Ricky Cornell Starks, 65, was found dead of a gunshot wound at one of the scenes where shots were fired, and authorities say he was not involved with the chase or the shootings.
The Cadillac Escalade that the suspects were driving was registered to Keenon Jackson, which is YG’s legal name. YG tweeted he knew nothing about the pursuit or shooting, and that he was in the studio that night until well after midnight.
Deputies did not disclose
