Amid the murder investigation, a tense debate over who was to blame spread across social media. Moreover, Michel Moore, the chief of the Los Angeles Police Department; had previously told area reporters the rapper was “brutally attacked by an individual who apparently, or we believe, came to the location after a social media posting of the artist and the woman accompanying him, posting on Instagram a picture of the meal,” according to the New York Times.

However, it was later revealed that two other people posted the location of the rapper on social media as well.

Even so, authorities said the shooter walked into Roscoe’s around 1 p.m. local time. The killer demanded PnB Rock’s property just before an argument broke out. At this time, the suspect then shot PnB Rock several times. Upon shooting him, he stole his valuables and rushed out of the restaurant to a waiting vehicle before fleeing, according to authorities. Subsequently, PnB Rock was later pronounced dead at an area hospital, according to KTLA. As well as that, Moore said “PnB Rock was shot and killed” because of his valuables.

Moreover, on September 28, Los Angeles police announced that two people were arrested on September 27 in relation to the killing.

 Importantly, the other suspect, identified as Shauntel Trone, 32, was booked on suspicion of accessory to murder along with her step-son, 17. Unclear as to why the family was in LA to begin with; Freddie Trone was located by authorities at an apartment near Charleston and Las Vegas Boulevard last week. On the other hand, the other suspect, as previously stated is Trone’s 17-year-old son, according to reports.

Consequently, a judge signed off on Freddie Trone’s extradition to Los Angeles during a quick hearing.
