A man has been arrested for allegedly murdering rapper Kid Cali, aka Justin Lishey, at a Granada Hills pool party last month, the Los Angeles Police Department announced this afternoon.

Cops allege that 19-year-old Kenny Birdine of Inglewood opened fire on the young artist, fatally wounding him, and that the motive was gang-related, LAPD Officer Drake Madison said. Today the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office charged Birdine with suspicion of first-degree murder, he said.

Cali, who once was signed to NFL wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s record label, Jaccpot Entertainment, was gunned down at an Aug. 20 event billed as the “Millions of Models Mansion Pool Party.”

A rapper well known in L.A.’s hip-hop community was killed in a shooting at a Granada Hills pool party over the weekend, according to multiple reports.

Kid Cali, who was once signed to NFL wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s record label, Jaccpot, was shot six times while attending an event on Saturday at a multimillion-dollar home in the 12400 block of Longacre Avenue. Digital fliers for the “Millions of Models Mansion Pool Party” stated that Chris Brown affiliate Kid Red would make an appearance.

Before the party, Kid Cali — real name Justin Lishey — posted on Instagram that he was “headed to this pool party wit my blood cuz’n @kidred.” Hours later, around 9 p.m., police responded to reports of a shooting at the house, LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman said. Three people had been shot, she said — Lishey died at a hospital and the other two were expected to survive.
