PNB Rock was shot during an armed robbery at a Chicken & Waffles store in South LA Roscoe on Monday afternoon. After further investigation, LAPD and Fox LA authorities announced that he had passed away.
As we reported earlier, a witness at the scene posted a video from inside the restaurant showing a man lying in a pool of blood. The witness said that an armed robbery took place and as a result rapper Philly was shot.
An officer present at the scene explained the incident to Fox LA that:
The victim was eating with a female witness when the suspect approached. The suspect then swung a gun to claim the property. We have no audio of his exact exchange at the time. The suspect then fired multiple shots and then appeared to take some property – to what extent, we don’t know.”
The official said that PNB Rock was declared dead shortly afterwards.

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