NEW YORK (AP) — An up-and-coming rapper was among several people arrested Wednesday in an investigation into a series of gang-related shootings and drug trafficking in the city.

Ackquille Pollard, who performs under the name Bobby Shmurda, was taken into custody shortly after he left a recording studio near Radio City Music Hall in midtown Manhattan.

Pollard, 20, is named with other defendants in an indictment that will be unsealed after their arraignments Thursday, said Kati Cornell, a spokeswoman for the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor. She declined to detail the charges.
