According to reports, PnB Rock died on Monday (September 12) after being shot at the South Los Angeles Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles.
Los Angeles police Capt. Kelly Muni, who declined to give his name to the Los Angeles Times, did add that the person had been declared dead at a nearby hospital at roughly 1:59 p.m. local time.
A tweet from reporter Philip Lewis read, “Breaking: PnB Rock has reportedly died after he was fatally shot during a robbery at the Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant in South Los Angeles.” He included the link to the L.A. Times story confirming his death.
PnB Rock, real name Rakim Allen, was there with his girlfriend when she shared the location in an Instagram photo. When the suspects arrived at the eatery, according to Muniz, they brandished a gun and demanded valuables from the Philadelphia rapper.
As Muniz explained, “He shot the victim and ran out the side door to a getaway car and then fled the parking lot.”
Investigators from the Los Angeles Police Department are looking at CCTV footage taken inside the restaurant in an effort to find the gunman. Additionally, they are asking nearby businesses if they have any additional footage.
