Rapper PnB Rock dead after being robbed and shot in Los Angeles

Rapper PnB Rock has died after being shot during a robbery in a Los Angeles famed Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘N Waffles restaurant Monday. People reports he was 30 years old.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Captain Kelly Muniz did not name the rapper but said in a news briefing shared by FOX LA on Monday that a “victim was sitting at a table eating with a female witness when he was approached by the suspect.”

The suspect then pulled out a gun “and demanded his property” before shooting several times “and appears to remove some property,” Muniz added.

He was later declared dead at 1:59 p.m. local time, said Muniz, adding that the South Bureau Homicide will be investigating the case along with “many other detectives.”

Though Muniz did not name the rapper, video and witnesses named the victim as PnB Rock, real name Rakim Hasheem Allen.

A graphic video of the aftermath of the shooting shows the rapper alive but severely injured. Someone asks how old he is and a woman is heard saying, “He’s 30.”

No one else was injured in the restaurant, according to KTLA.
