Doctors Operated The ‘Welcome To The Party’ Rapper In An Attempt To Save His Life After He Was Taken To Hospital With Serious Gunshot Wound Following Home Invasion.
Pop Smoke’s death certificate reveals doctors’ extreme efforts to save him after he was shot in a home invasion on February 19, 2020.
The “Welcome to the Party” hitmaker, real name Bashar Barakah Jackson, was killed by a gunshot wound to the torso by armed robbers, and in documents obtained by TMZ, it is claimed medics did all they could to resuscitate the star.
It appears lifesaving efforts were made, including a thoracotomy or opening of the chest, which may have been to remove the bullets, when the rapper was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles following the incident.
It says the time between the shooting and his death was “rapid.” Pop Smoke’s time of death is listed as 5.12 A.M.
His body was transported to Brooklyn, where family and friends held a private ceremony last week. He will be laid to rest later this week.
