Update: 17-Year-Old & His Stepmom Arrested For Their Involvement w/ PnB Rock’s Murder, Authorities Still Searching For Father Who Allegedly Drove The Getaway Car
Update #2: (Sept. 29): As more information comes out, it seems like the murder of PnB Rock was a family affair.
According to new reports, A woman by the name of Shauntel Trone has also been arrested in connection to the fatal shooting of PnB Rock. Shauntel Trone is said to be the wife of Freddie Trone — the man who allegedly drove the getaway vehicle — and stepmom of the 17-year-old accused of pulling the trigger. Shauntel Trone was arrested and booked for accessory to murder.
Update #1: (Sept. 28): According to reports, the 17-year-old son of Freddie Trone, the man named as “a person involved” in PnB Rock’s murder, has been arrested in connection to the shooting. Allegedly, the teenager was the shooter, and his father, Freddie Trone, drove the getaway car.
Reports claim that the father and son duo were already in the restaurant’s parking lot when the “Luv Me Again” artist arrived. If this is true that would mean that, despite what many may think, PnB Rock’s girlfriend sharing their location on IG played no role in his tragic death.
This is a developing story. Please stay posted for more updates.
