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.

But the sudden removal of a judge who’d been on the case for a decade over a technicality has suddenly thrown the process into turmoil. Westword has the story.

Long Beach police appeared to be flummoxed in their search for a gunman who murdered a mother and her kindergarten-age daughter in a part of the city that hasn’t seen such violence in years.

Talking to reporters today, police discounted the possibility that this was gang-related or random; it appeared 26-year-old Carina Mancera and 4-year-old Jennabel Anaya were targeted when someone walked up to them and opened fire on a downtown-area street.

Cops rushed to Ninth Street and Locust Avenue about 10:20 p.m Saturday, according to the Long Beach Police Department.
