Two people have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of rapper PnB Rock and Los Angeles police are looking for a third suspect on Wednesday who they say should be considered armed and dangerous.
The Philadelphia artist, whose real name is Rakim Allen, was shot dead on September 13 in a restaurant in Los Angeles while eating with his girlfriend. A robber approached their table and demanded items from the rapper, according to investigators.
A minor under the age of 18 and a woman were taken into custody on Tuesday, according to Los Angeles police. The minor could face a murder charge and Shauntel Trone (the lady), 38, was arrested on suspicion of being an accomplice to murder, according to a police statement.
A third suspect, 40-year-old Freddie Lee Trone, father of the minor, remains at large, LAPD Capt. Kelly Muniz said.
“He should be considered armed and dangerous“LAPD police said in the statement.
Detectives believe a social media post may have tipped Rock's killer to his location, police said in a statement. Rock's girlfriend had posted their location and tagged the rapper in a now-deleted Instagram post.
The thief took items from the victim and fled in a car waiting in the parking lot, police said. Rock was later pronounced dead in a hospital.
Rock was best known for his 2016 hit "Selfish" and for making guest appearances on songs by other artists such as YFN Lucci's "Everyday We Lit" and Ed Sheeran's "Cross Me" featuring Chance the Rapper. Her latest song, “Luv Me Again,” was released on September 2.
