ABC 7 New York noted the Harlem shooting occurred around 7:15 p.m. and the 24-year-old shooting victim is also facing a gun charge. The New York Daily News observed that Lauper was allegedly carrying “a loaded Glock handgun” at the time of his arrest.
Lauper’s bail was set at $20,000, cash and he is expected to appear in court on Tuesday of this week.
He had another run-in with the law in 2022 when he “admitted to disorderly conduct after he was arrested in a stolen Mercedes.”
The New York Daily News pointed out that Lauper raps under the name, “Dex Lauper.”
