LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- Keenon Jackson, the rapper better known as YG, was booked on suspicion of robbery after being arrested in Chatsworth on Friday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The 29-year-old was apprehended after deputies served a search warrant in the 22000 block of Zaltana Street around 4 a.m., according to Deputy Grace Medrano.

The warrant was served as part of an “ongoing criminal investigation,” Medrano stated.

YG's arrest comes about six months after deputies raided the sprawling Hollywood Hills mansion he was leasing. The July 2019 raid led to one arrest, and several others were detained.

Investigators told KTLA at the time that the investigation was connected to a pursuit and shootout that occurred in Compton on July 3. The incident involved a black Cadillac Escalade registered to YG.

One person, an innocent pedestrian identified as 65-year-old Ricky Starks of Compton, was killed in the crossfire when at least one occupant in the SUV fired at deputies during the chase. Others suffered minor wounds.

Jackson has been booked on suspicion of robbery at the Men’s Central Jail near downtown L.A. and was held on $250,000, according to Medrano.
