Orlando rapper 9lokkNine was ordered held without bond the morning after his Friday arrest on attempted-murder charges, which according to police records stemmed from a Thursday shooting in the Rosemont neighborhood.
Jacquavius Dennard Smith, whose stage name is pronounced “Glock Nine,” was arrested on five counts of attempted second-degree murder with a firearm, as well as one count of shooting into an occupied dwelling and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
The 20-year-old will remain at the Orange County Jail for now, after a judge Saturday morning revoked his bond in a separate case, in which he is charged with oxycodone possession. His bond for the attempted-murder and weapons charges is set at $35,600.
Orlando police didn’t release any details regarding Smith’s arrest Friday. In response to a request for more information Saturday, the agency released a case report from a Thursday shooting at a home in the 4000 block of Bleasdale Avenue, though the report didn’t make clear the rapper’s involvement.
A woman who lives at the home told officers she and three of her children were in the living room watching TV around 10 p.m. when her other daughter ran into the room.
“Get down, get down,” the daughter yelled as bullets hit their home, according to the case report. The woman told police she covered her children on the floor until the shots stopped.
No one was hurt, the report said.
The daughter told police she was looking out of a bedroom window when she saw two black sedans park in front of the home. Multiple men wielding firearms got out of the cars and fired at the house, according to the report.
Officers found bullet holes in the garage door, front door and a window, as well as shell casings on the road in front of the home, the report said. A vehicle parked in the driveway of a neighbor’s home also had a bullet hole in its rear tailgate.
The woman’s daughter identified one person who shot at the home as a man nicknamed “Ballpark.” She said Ballpark was an associate of Smith and the two are “always together,” the report said.
At his first appearance Saturday, Smith’s defense lawyer, David Bigney, told a judge the rapper arranged his surrender to police as soon as he found out there was a warrant for his arrest.
“He was completely cooperative,” Bigney said. “He is not a flight risk.”
Smith is known for his 2018 hit single “10 percent” and a 2019 feature on Florida rapper YNW Melly’s track “223 1/4 u2032s.”
