MORE OF THIS OUTRAGEOUS CATCH AND RELEASE OF VIOLENT THUGS!!!!!
Charges against a 16-year-old rapper accused of shooting a New York police officer earlier this year have been dropped, according to officials.
The New York City Law Department said in a statement Friday that Camrin Williams, 16, “cannot be prosecuted” but failed to elaborate.
Williams, who goes by the stage name C Blu, was facing charges after he allegedly shot NYPD Officer Kaseem Pennant in the leg in January.
The teenager allegedly accidentally shot Pennant after the two tussled, and Williams attempted to flee. The gun discharged and struck Williams in the groin before exiting his thigh and hitting the officer.
Cops were responding to a disorderly crowd when Williams approached a white vehicle and put his hands in his pockets, police said, according to the New York Post. Police asked the teenager to show his hands, but he refused, leading to the tussle.
The teenager was already on probation for gun possession when the shooting occurred. The gun possession case was picked up in May 2020, when Williams was just 14.
The teenager posted a $250,000 bond in late January using money from a record label he had signed with Interscope Records a few months earlier.
