Nothing prepared the entertainment industry for the news that a popular US rapper had reportedly been killed in a robbery operation at a restaurant in Los Angeles on Monday, September 12, 2022, at the young age of 30 years.
The LA Times had reported that the rapper had stopped at a restaurant with his girlfriend, who had shared a location-tagged video on her social media platform, which was where he was attacked.
The LA Times stated:
Los Angeles police Capt. Kelly Muniz said a shooting took place at 1:15 p.m. at the famous eatery on Main Street and Manchester Avenue. Muniz said a suspect brandished a firearm inside the restaurant and demanded items from the victim. Sources told The Times that Rock was targeted for his jewelry.
The victim was shot almost immediately by the assailant during the robbery, Muniz said.
“He shot the victim and ran out the side door to a getaway car and then fled the parking lot,” she said.
Muniz said the victim was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at 1:59 p.m.
Rest in peace, PnB Rock.
