PnB Rock passed away at the age of 30 after the shooting in Los Angeles.

To find the shooter, LAPD investigators are reviewing security footage.

Rapper PnB Rock reportedly passed away from wounds he received in a gunshot on Monday in Los Angeles (September 12). Thirty years old was him.

Around 1pm on Monday, the Philadelphia-born musician, best known for his 2016 hit tune “Selfish,” was shot at the Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant in South Los Angeles.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Rock, actual name Rakim Allen, visited the restaurant with his girlfriend, who published a location-tagged Instagram post that has since been deleted.

Allen thought he had been targeted for his jewellery but Los Angeles police Captain Lelly Muniz stated a suspect “brandished a pistol inside the restaurant and demanded stuff from the victim.”

Muniz claimed, “[The culprit] shot the victim and exited the parking lot out the side door to a getaway car.” Investigators from the Los Angeles Police Department are reportedly looking at security footage taken inside the eatery to identify the gunman and determine whether they made their getaway on foot or in a car. After being taken to a nearby hospital, Allen was declared dead at 1:59 p.m.

In 2014, Allen, who was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1991, released his debut mixtape, “Real N*gga Bangaz.” In 2015, he got a record deal with Atlantic Records and dropped his third mixtape, “RnB3.”

In 2016, Allen released his single, “Selfish.” On the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, the song peaked at position 51. He had an appearance on the 2017 song “Everyday We Lit” by YFN Lucci, which peaked at No. 33 on the same list.

On Ed Sheeran’s 2019 song “Cross Me,” he collaborated with Chance The Rapper.

This month, Allen released his most recent track, “Luv Me Again.” His two daughters are his only heirs. Social media is flooded with tributes from Allen’s peers. He was such a pleasure to work with, stated Nicki Minaj on Twitter, “This makes me so sick.”
