US Rapper "PnB Rock" Shot Dead In Suspected Robbery At LA Restaurant
US rapper PnB Rock has been killed in a suspected robbery at Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles in Los Angeles.
The 30-year-old rapper was in the restaurant with his girlfriend in south LA when a gunman allegedly demanded jewellery before opening fire. PnB had suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead around 45 minutes later in hospital.
No arrests have been made over the shooting that took place on Monday.
Captain Kelly Muniz, from Los Angeles Police Department, said the gunman approached a couple inside Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles and demanded they hand over personal items.
Captain Muniz told local news reporters at the scene that "some sort of verbal exchange" took place before the rapper was shot several times and fell to the floor.
The shooter then "removed items from the victim", before fleeing to a getaway vehicle that was waiting outside.
PnB Rock, who was born in 1991 in Philadelphia, had recorded two studio albums, Catch These Vibes and Trapstar Turnt PopStar. His most recent song, Luv Me Again, was released just two days before the fatal shooting.
