Meanwhile, what was astounding for his fans was that he was accused of attempted murder. However, the identity of the victim has not been disclosed by the police department.

On Tuesday, the Metropolitan Police Department announced that they had apprehended rapper Blueface on a warrant for attempted murder.
Both accusations against Blueface, whose real name is Johnathan Porter, arise from an alleged shooting on October 8. Authorities were slow to release any new information.
On October 9, the victim, later identified as Kentabius Traylor, flagged down the police after reporting that his car had been shot at.
After Traylor mentioned that the rapper was conversing with some women in a shabby vehicle, he told the police that the rapper, Porter, fired shots at his car.
The arrest report indicates that surveillance footage depicted Traylor being attacked outside the club before he drove away in his pickup.
By using details obtained from social media, investigators eventually linked Porter to the shooting, and on November 7, a warrant was issued.
On November 15, he was arrested. After a traffic stop in California in February, Blueface was apprehended for firearm possession. This year (2019), he was found with an unregistered gun.
Porter was apprehended in front of a store on the 300 block of Hughes Center Drive.
Porter would be transferred to the Clark County Detention Center on charges of shooting into an occupied building and premeditated manslaughter with a deadly weapon, as reported by the Las Vegas Police Department.
