Rapper Blueface was arrested Tuesday on an attempted murder charge stemming from a shooting last month, Las Vegas police said.
The artist, whose real name is Johnathan Porter, was booked into the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas, according to a statement from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
The 25-year-old was arrested on “warrants for attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm at/into an occupied structure” related to a shooting on October 8, police said in the statement.
A $50,000 bond was set Wednesday during Blueface’s initial court appearance on the charges, according to court documents, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for January.
