As we previously reported, PnB Rock was shot during an armed robbery at a South LA Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles on September 12th. After further investigation, LAPD authorities and local news affiliate FOX LA confirmed that he passed away from his injuries.
An eyewitness at the scene posted a video from inside the restaurant showing a man lying in a pool of blood, who was unidentified at the time. The witness further stated that an armed robbery had occurred and that PnB Rock was shot as a result.
An officer who responded to the scene of the shooting recalled the incident during an interview, saying “The victim was sitting at a table eating with a female witness when he was approached by the suspect. The suspect then brandished the firearm and demanded his property. We don’t have the audio of what his exact exchange was at the time. The suspect then fired multiple rounds and then appears to remove some property–to what extent, we don’t know.”
