The son of music legend Cyndi Lauper, a rapper, was taken into custody on Wednesday night following a shooting incident in Harlem.
During the evidence search, police officers found 26-year-old Declyn “Dex” Lauper in possession of a loaded gun nearby.
Lauper faced charges for possessing a weapon and a controlled substance.
The shooting incident did not result in any charges against him, and the investigation into the matter is still ongoing.
