PnB Rock, the stage name of hip-hop artist and Philadelphia native Rakim Hasheem Allen, was shot and killed Monday afternoon in Los Angeles, local news outlets have reported.
An explicit and graphic video is currently circulating online purportedly depicting PnB Rock on the floor surrounded by a pool of blood.
The incident took place inside the Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles restaurant located in Inglewood, as Allen was dining with his girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang.
Stephanie Sibounheuang, reportedly posted a picture of their meal on her Instagram stories (now deleted) and also tagged the restaurant location.
While many took to Twitter to send hopeful messages to PnB Rock, some also speculated that the shooter was aware of the rapper’s location due to his girlfriend posting — and tagging Roscoe’s — on her Instagram story.
