Man Arrested for Shooting Tattoo Shop Owner Trigz

A suspect is under arrest in connection with the shooting death of a famous tattoo shop owner.

Thirty-one-year-old Robert Falcon, of Sylmar, was charged with one count of murder Thursday for allegedly shooting Sin City Tattoo owner Michael Pebly, also known as Trigz, after a fight at a North Hollywood business on Thursday, Oct. 9, according to a Los Angeles Police Department news release.

Falcon is being held on $2 million bail, the release said, following his arrest by North Hollywood LAPD detectives Tuesday.

Heavily tattooed and pierced, Trigz was known for his Pacoima tattoo shop an as a body modification model who worked on music videos with artists like Wiz Khalifa and Travis Barker.

"He had a lot to offer the world, just showing that you can't just look at people and just see the outside," friend Jon Lake told NBC4 earlier this month.

The LAPD release said Trigz and a man got in a fight at a business on Laurel Canyon Road in North Hollywood on Oct. 9. The fight apparently spilled outside, where Trigz's attacker pulled out a handgun and shot him.

The suspect fled, the LAPD said, while Trigz was found on the ground with a wound in his side.

The investigation is ongoing, according to the LAPD. They request that anyone with information call detectives at 818-623-4075 or 818-754-8451.
