Rapper Blueface was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas on suspicion of attempted murder.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement that the 25-year-old, whose real name is Jonathan Porter, was taken into custody around 2:40 p.m. outside of a business in the 300 block of Hughes Center Drive.

“He will be booked into the Clark County Detention Center on warrants for attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm at/into an occupied structure,” it read, noting that the artist was wanted in connection with an Oct. 8 shooting in the 6000 block of Windy Road.

A video of the apparent undercover operation was posted online, showing plainclothes officers taking the star into custody outside of Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles. According to TMZ, which first posted the footage, six to eight officers were involved in his arrest. The Los Angeles native's girlfriend, musician and influencer Chrisean Rock, was with him.

After rising to prominence as a meme rapper in 2018, Blueface scored a hit on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart with a remix of his song "Thotiana" (featuring Cardi B and YG), which peaked at No. 8.
