30-year old, Rakim Hasheem Allen, better known by his rap name PnB Rock, was shot and killed during a robbery in the middle of the afternoon at popular Los Angeles food spot, Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles, yesterday. A 6 ABC Action News report said the incident happened at around 1:23 p.m. pst. on Monday afternoon.
First responding police officers at the scene reported finding a male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds when they arrived. He was rushed to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Initial reports say PnB was having lunch at the restaurant with his girlfriend, when they were approached by a suspect who pulled a gun and demanded the rapper’s property. The suspect then shot PnB multiple times, removed PnB’s property, and left in an awaiting getaway car parked outside.
“What occurred was the victim, along with a female witness, were in this area eating at a restaurant when they were approached by at least one suspect, who brandished a firearm and demanded property from the victim. The suspect then shot the victim multiple times, and removed the property and then left the location in a getaway car”, said LAPD Captain, Kelly Muniz during a Monday afternoon press conference.
Police said they are checking the restaurant’s surveillance cameras and interviewing potential witnesses, but no suspects have been identified and no arrests have been made at this time.
Police said they could not verify reports that the rapper’s location was shared via his Instagram account, or if that information was somehow related to PNB’s murder. The police investigation is ongoing.
