Kodak Black’s Fingerprints, Gun and Rental Car Linked to Shooting, Feds Say: Report
According to a report TMZ published on Monday (May 20), fingerprints, a gun and a rental car in Kodak's name have been linked to a shooting that went down in Pompano Beach, Fla. on March 7. Federal prosecutors allege that someone in a rented Porsche Panamera opened fire on the home of a rival rapper in Florida's Golden Acres community. This rival, who has not been named by TMZ, was not hit and everyone inside the home, including several children, survived without injury.
Legal docs reveal that Kodak's fingerprints were discovered in the Porsche Panamera he allegedly rented. The docs also show that Kodak dropped $3,518.71 for a Mini Draco pistol, Sig MPX K 9mm pistol and Sig P238 .380 pistol.
Prosecutors allege that Kodak purchased three weapons and over 100 rounds of ammo back in February from Lou's Police Distributors, which is the same place where Kodak allegedly bought guns after filing paperwork with false information in order to obtain a firearm. The purchase was reportedly set up soon after Kodak turned in the gun application this past January.
During the police investigation of the crime scene in Pompano Beach in March, police found the Porsche abandoned and severely damaged about 14 miles from the crime scene. Then they obtained the vehicle's GPS data and pinpointed the car in Golden Acres at the time of the shooting.
Kodak's criminal attorney, Bradford Cohen, tells XXL that prosecutors admitted that the gun found at the scene of the crime had not been used. He also said that witnesses from the site of the shooting told him and Kodak that they hadn't seen the rapper at the scene of the shooting.
These allegations against Kodak marks the second recent legal trouble he's been tied to since he was arrested before his Rolling Loud set on federal gun charges on May 11. He pleaded not guilty but, if convicted, he could face 10 years in prison. As of this report, Kodak Black has not been charged with a crime in the developing case.
