A little over a week ago, PnB Rock’s life was taken from him after being shot in the chest while he was out in LA eating at Roscoe’s Chicken n Waffles, and there are no leads in who could have done the shooting.
However, according to TMZ, the LAPD is now looking into his past beefs trying to figure out if those could have something to do with his death.
Sources with the LAPD told TMZ that they are “moving in several concurrent directions” while investigating PnB Rock’s past beefs in both Atlanta and Philly. They are also looking at PnB Rock’s lyrics for clues about people he was possibly beefing with, while also asking for information about feuds he’d had in the past.
Sources with the LAPD previously addressed PnB Rock’s girlfriend posting their location while they were out to eat at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles in South Los Angeles on September 12. Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore released a statement the following day, where he said that PnB Rock “was with his family – with his girlfriend or some kind of friend of his – and as they’re there, enjoying a simple meal, [he] was brutally attacked by an individual who apparently [came] to the location after a social media posting.”
Hopefully, they can figure out who the shooter was soon. Hopefully, people will stop blaming his girlfriend.
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.
Video showing the aftermath of the incident was shared to Instagram by bystanders. The security guard shown in the graphic clip spoke to Rolling Stone near the scene, his bright blue sneakers stained with blood. He asked to be identified only by the initials G.T. and said he heard about three shots before rushing to the wounded rapper’s side. “I did what anybody, I hope, would do for me,” he said. “I was telling him, ‘Be calm, be calm, get control of your breathing. Don’t trip on what you thought you seen, get control of your breathing.’ And then his breathing declined. It went all the way down. I think he was gone. He was just gone,” G.T. said. “I was probably the last person he saw.”
