NYC Teen Rapper Charged with Shooting NYPD Officer Walks Free on Bond


16-year-old Camrin Williams, known as C Blu in the rap world, walked free from jail this week after shooting a New York City police officer last week.

Williams was arrested after shooting a police officer in the Bronx on January 18th.

As stated by National Review:

Williams allegedly shot a police officer who responded to reports of an unruly crowd at Lorillard Place near East 187th Street on January 18, according to the report. The teen would not remove his hands from his pockets and a struggle with police ensued. A gun Williams was holding discharged during the struggle, striking and wounding NYPD officer Kaseem Pennant and hitting the teenager in the groin.

The shooting comes after Williams already had a gun possession arrest on his record from 2020 and was placed on probation as a juvenile in the case one month ago.

Williams walked free after posting his $250,000 bond on Thursday, January 27.

On January 2nd, Williams released a video titled “Message Pt.2,” where he is filmed wielding a gun.

The New York Post reported:

A 16-year-old, up-and-coming rapper charged with shooting an NYPD cop in the Bronx walked free on bond Thursday — and cops are fuming over it.

Camrin Williams, who is also known by the rap name C Blu, posted his $250,000 bond after being locked up at a Brooklyn juvenile facility on gun and assault charges in the shooting of a 27-year-old cop in Belmont.

“If anybody wants to know why we have a crisis of violence in this city, or why we’re about to bury two hero police officers, look no further than this disgraceful bail release,” NYPD Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch said in a statement.

“This individual chose to carry illegal guns twice,” Lynch said. “He chose to fight with and shoot a New York City police officer. There’s no reason to believe he won’t do the exact same thing when he’s out on the street tonight.

“Shame on Judge Denis Boyle for allowing this to happen,” he said. “The people of the Bronx won’t be safe as long as he’s on the bench.”
