A 24-year-old man whom police say is a gang member already in custody on robbery charges, was arrainged in an Inglewood courtroom for allegedly killing a young rapper in 2017.
Andre Jeremy Garcia-Brown, a member of the Bloods criminal street gang, is charged with murder and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, according to the Inglewood Police Department.
Garcia-Brown is accused of fatally shooting 24-year-old Shawn Ivy, police said.
Ivy performed under the name Sean Mack, police said.
Officers responded at 2:20 a.m. on July 6, 2017, to the 600 block of Hardin Drive in Inglewood to investigate a shots-fired call and found the rapper dead at the scene, police said.
About 200 people attended a vigil for Ivy later that evening.
Inglewood police arrested Garcia-Brown about 5:30 p.m. Oct. 4. He was booked into the Men’s Central Jail about four hours later, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department jail records.
