On Monday, Sept. 12, video surfaced of rapper Pnb Rock laid on the ground of a Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles establishment covered in blood. According to bystanders who posted the video footage, the “Selfish” rapper had reportedly been shot after a robbery gone bad at a Los Angeles’ Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles.
The video is too gruesome to share, but has been going viral on social media. However, it has been confirmed that the rapper was with his girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, at the time of the shooting.
“The victim was sitting at a table eating with a female witness when he was approached by the suspect,” said Los Angeles police Capt. Kelly Muniz. “The suspect then brandished a firearm and demanded his property. … The suspect then fired multiple rounds and then appears to remove some property, to what extent we don’t know at this time.”
As of 8:30 PM, the Los Angeles Times has confirmed that PnB Rock, born Rakim Allen, passed away just before 2 PM PT/5 PM ET.
He was 30 years-old.
Our prayers are with his family and friends.
