PnB Rock, born Rakim Allen, was reportedly transported to a nearby hospital in the L.A. area. PnB Rock, 30, is speculated to have been dining at the restaurant with his girlfriend, who uploaded a photo of the meal and their location in South Central on social media, which appears to have led to PnB being shot.
According to a source connected to the restaurant, it appears the shooter targeted the artist since no one else was shot or assaulted, and there were plenty of customers inside the restaurant. The inside source added that it appears the shooter took jewelry off PnB then proceeded to flee the scene. The “Selfish” singer had posted a video of himself wearing several diamond/silver chains prior to the incident.
His condition is currently unknown at this time.
