Prosecutors referred the case to the City Attorney’s Office for review. That office has yet to announced whether a misdemeanor case will be filed against the 26-year-old rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Way.
Police said officers found the weapon about 7 a.m. Dec. 15 at his home in the 3200 block of Dos Palos Drive.
A police spokeswoman said then she did not know why officers were at the home, but TMZ.com reported that the rapper allegedly made some online threats involving guns, and someone called police.
According to a city attorney’s spokesman, Way had been arrested in 2014 in Granada Hills and was subsequently convicted of carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle.
His two-year probation term was due to end this month, according to the Los Angeles Times, which reported that Way also had a drugs and weapons-related arrest in 2011 in Georgia.
