PnB Rock Fatally Shot In Los Angeles
It’s with a heavy heart that I report PnB Rock was shot and killed inside a Los Angeles Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles on Monday (September 12) afternoon.
The rapper was dining with his girlfriend, Steph, who posted a photo of their meal and their location on social media.
Around 1:30 p.m. PST, police received a call for a shooting victim.
Sources connected to the restaurant told TMZ that it appeared that PNB Rock was targeted by the shooter because no one else was shot or assaulted.
Following the shooting, the suspect snatched PNB’s jewelry and fled the scene.
The rapper was pronounced dead at 1:59 p.m.
