While many people around the world continue to mourn the passing of Rock And RollLos Angeles Police Chief Michael Moore recently spoke out and shared some details about the investigation surrounding his death.
Moore said they are investigating whether a social media post may have played a role in the incident. One of the posts was a photo shared by PnB Rock’s girlfriend. However, authorities say that she is not to blame for the incident and that she is cooperating with investigators.
According to CBS Los AngelesLAPD Captain Kelly Muniz shared what happened on the day of the fatal shooting, saying:
“While they were eating, at least one suspect approached them with a firearm and demanded the victim’s property. There was some kind of verbal exchange at this point, we couldn’t get audio on the investigation. The suspect then shot the victim multiple times. The victim then fell to the ground and the suspect took some items from her.”
Moore said on Tuesday: “A struggle ensued and PnB Rock was shot and killed. He lost his life there, simply because of the jewelry and valuables that he had on his person.”
No information about the suspect and how he escaped has been made available. Investigators are reviewing security footage from inside Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles where this unfortunate situation occurred, as well as security footage from surrounding businesses to see if they can capture an image of the suspect and how they were able to escape the scene.
As previously shared, during a recent interview with DJ Akademiks, PnB Rock shared that during a different situation, someone tried to rob Los Angeles while he was out with his daughter and girlfriend.
We continue to keep loved ones at PnB Rock up in prayer during this difficult time.
