New York rapper taken into custody after Sacramento stand-off

A rapper wanted in connection with a New York homicide was taken into custody Monday night in Natomas, a spokeswoman for the Sacramento Police Department said.

Responding to an anonymous tip, the department arrived at a home on the 2100 block of Raymar Way at around 7 p.m. Monday, said Officer Michele Gigante, a department spokeswoman.

A woman and child left the home and were cooperative, Gigante said. She said hostage negotiators and SWAT were called as a precaution, given the suspect's alleged violent history.

The man later surrendered Monday night without incident. Gigante identified him as Agdnan McLeod.

Nassau County police said that McLeod, a hip hop artist known as "Duffle Bag Agg," allegedly shot Rameel Blanco, 30, outside a Hempstead home on Aug. 1, 2012, according to story in The Long Island Press.
