Rapper PnB Rock, 30, was killed Monday in an assault inside a Los Angeles restaurant, where he was eating with his girlfriend.
The artist Rakim Hasheem Allen, better known by his artistic name, PnB Rock, had uploaded a video to his social networks in which he was seen with necklaces and valuable jewelry. Later, his partner uploaded an image to Instagram indicating the geolocation of both. An armed robber showed up there and shot him, which later caused his death.
Despite the fact that the restaurant was full of people, according to witnesses, the thief went directly to the rapper and was the only one he assaulted. He shot her, took her jewelry and fled.
The news was advanced by the celebrity site TMZ and the rapper’s death was later confirmed by the authorities. TMZ published a video in which the musician is still alive on the ground, before he was taken to the hospital. His death occurred 45 minutes after the shot.
The restaurant where the events occurred is one of the Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles chain, specializing in chicken and waffles, specifically the one on Manchester Boulevard, in Inglewood.
The rapper, who was born in Philadelphia, was based in Los Angeles.
