PnB Rock killed in armed robbery at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in Los Angeles
Philadelphia born rapper PnB Rock was shot and killed at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant in LA earlier this afternoon around 1 PM. The recording artist was targeted in a brazen daytime robbery according to police.
PnB Rock passed away at the age of 30 after being shot in Los Angeles
PnB Rock was best known for his hit singles “Fleek” and “Selfish” as well as his work on the hit songs “Gang Up” and “Horses”. The rapper, who’s real name was Rakim Allen, had just released a new single “Luv Me Again” on September 2.
It has been reported that his girlfriend tagged their location in a now deleted Instagram post shortly before the robbery. In this way the attack and murder echoes the death of Pop Smoke, the rapper who was targeted for a robbery after his location was shared on social media.
PnB Rock death video published by TMZ
Gruesome footage of the aftermath of the attack was shared by TMZ, and can easily be found on social media. The graphic video shows a man, presumably PnB Rock, in a pool of blood on the floor of the restaurant. It is highly disturbing and frankly should not be viewed by anyone.
The police have not released any information regarding suspects at this time and it’s presumed the investigation is ongoing.
