LOS ANGELES—Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery and Homicide Division has obtained a video of a person behind the wheel of an undisclosed car, flashing a gun while watching an unmindful cop.
Investigators leading the story have declared that the video is for entertainment purposes and is non-threatening. It was was made for an “out of fashion” 90’s rap group’s comeback.
The video was recently posted to social media outlet Instagram, but has since been taken down after going viral. The LAPD has not disclosed the owner of the Instagram account, but according to reports made by NBC Los Angeles, the owner might be linked to @Brownside_Klever, according to information provided by PoliceOne.com. The @Brownside_Klever account is being used to promote the comeback of Brownside, a South LA Chicano hip-hop group that was founded in 1994.
