LAPD Says There Was A Getaway Vehicle Waiting For The Suspect At Roscoes Parking Lot

Philadelphia rapper PnB Rock, best known for his groundbreaking take on the trap genre, was fatally shot in Los Angeles while dining at a South L.A. restaurant Monday afternoon.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the 30-year-old Philadelphia rapper, real name Rakim Allen, died after being shot “multiple times” at the Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles location on Manchester Boulevard during the course of a robbery around 1:15 p.m. local time.

The rapper was rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:59 p.m. As of now, LAPD officials haven’t named a suspect in the shooting — but an eyewitness told Rolling Stone the rapper apparently was targeted for his jewelry.

According to new reports reaching us at Dreddsworld, the LAPD said there was a getaway vehicle waiting for the suspect at the parking lot of Roscoe’s. Once shooting PnB Rock, the gunman got in the sedan and was driven off. No make or model are available right now.

The witness, a security guard at the property who rendered aid to PnB before paramedics arrived, said the “Selfish” singer visited the restaurant with his girlfriend. A flurry of social media posts noted the girlfriend had shared a geotagged image of her food to Instagram in a since-deleted post.

“The victim was eating at a table when he was approached by one suspect,” LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman told Rolling Stone.

She said the “suspect demanded items” from the rapper, brandished a weapon and fired multiple shots. The suspect “removed some items from the victim, entered a waiting vehicle and fled the scene,” she said.
