GNP Rock was shot during an armed robbery at South LA Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles on Monday afternoon. After further investigation, LAPD authorities and L.A. Fox They have reported that he died.
As we previously reported, a witness at the scene posted video from inside the restaurant showing a man lying in a pool of blood. The witness stated that an armed robbery had taken place and that the Philadelphia rapper was shot as a result.
An officer who responded to the scene explained the incident to Fox LA saying:
The victim was sitting at a table eating with a witness when the suspect approached her. The suspect then brandished the firearm and demanded ownership of it. We don’t have the audio of what her exact exchange was at that time. The suspect then fired several rounds and then appears to take some property, to what extent, we don’t know.”
The officer claimed that PNB Rock was pronounced dead shortly after.

Before the deadly shooting, PNB Rock appeared to be enjoying some time with his girlfriend Steph Sibounheuang. The two were photographed on Instagram out for a fancy dinner on Sunday night, and even spent some time together on Monday. Just an hour before the robbery happened, Steph posted her geotagged location along with a photo of her food at Roscoe’s. The post has since been deleted.
The ‘Selfish’ rapper signed a record deal with Atlantic Records in 2014, and has since collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, including Meek Mill, Kodak Black, A Boogie, YFN Lucci, Kevin Gates, Lil Yachty and even the late Pop Smoke.
Authorities have yet to identify a suspect in the shooting.
