PnB Rock: A Father And Son Are Accused Of Killing A Rapper

PnB Rock

Rapper PnB Rock was killed, and a father and son are accused of it. The 30-year-old artist was fatally murdered on September 12 inside a Waffle House in Los Angeles.

Freddie Lee Trone, 40, and his son, 17, are each accused of one crime of murder, two charges of second-degree robbery, and one count of conspiring to conduct robbery, according to the authorities.

Shauntel Trone, the wife of Mr. Trone, was also detained and charged with one count of accessory after the fact.

With the release of his 2016 single, Selfish, PnB—real name Rakim Hasheem Allen—became well-known. He has worked with several musicians, including Ed Sheeran.

On the day of the shooting, he was eating lunch with his girlfriend at Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles in south Los Angeles when a shooter approached them.

Before opening fire, the suspect allegedly demanded they surrender their belongings, took items from the victim, and then escaped in a waiting getaway car.

PnB sustained numerous gunshot wounds and was declared dead 45 minutes later in the hospital.

The adolescent had his initial court appearance in a juvenile court; his name was not made public in the charge notice. He is due back for a pre-trial hearing on October 19th.

District Attorney George Gascón, the top prosecutor in Los Angeles, claimed that PnB’s death had “dimmed a bright light in the lives of his fans, friends, and most especially his family.”

“The accused defendants in this case are said to have committed heartless, ruthless acts that deprived the world of Mr. Allen’s gifts.”

Following his passing, tributes to PnB poured in from musicians, including Drake, who shared a picture of the two on his Instagram story.

Rapper Offset asked fans to pray for PnB’s two children in a Twitter tribute, and Nicki Minaj praised him as “a pleasure to work with.”

In 1991, Philadelphia saw the birth of PnB Rock, who went on to release the studio albums Catch These Vibes and Trapstar Turnt PopStar.

Just two days before the shooting, he released his final song, Luv Me Again.
