Pop Smoke's Alleged Killer Says He Did 'Assaulted' 15-Yr-Old Triggerman!!

The only adult suspect charged with murdering Pop Smoke says he was so mad at one of his 15-year-old co-defendants for shooting and killing Pop Smoke that he "assaulted" him afterward.

Corey Walker, 20, and his attorney Christopher Darden, filed a motion to dismiss his murder and robbery charges. He said he did not want Pop Smoke shot -- only hit with a vase.

"It is clear from the evidence that [Walker] did not enter the house, was not armed, and did not personally kill the victim. Moreover, the evidence is clear that the defendant did not share the actual killer's intent to kill," Darden wrote in the filing according to Rolling Stone.

"The defendant was aware that a weapon was being used," Darden wrote, but "he was careful to insist that his weapon" not be fired.

Walker allegedly insisted that "if it became necessary for the suspects to defend themselves, they should use a flower vase rather than shoot someone," Darden wrote. "It was only after the robbers exited the house and reentered the vehicle that [Walker] learned of the shooting. In response, [Walker] assaulted the shooter," he argued.

Walker's trial is to begin some time early 2022.
