The Philadelphia artist was gunned down Sept. 13 at a South LA restaurant while eating with his girlfriend.
Los Angeles police named the suspect in the deadly shooting of rapper PnB Rock on Wednesday and advised him to be regarded as armed and dangerous.
Rakim Allen, a Philadelphia artist, was assassinated on September 13 at a South L.A. restaurant while eating with his girlfriend. According to detectives, a thief approached their table and demanded goods from the rapper.
“Freddie Lee Trone has been identified as a person engaged in Rakim Allen’s murder,” police stated in a statement. “He should be regarded as armed and dangerous.” If you find him, please phone 911 for quick assistance.”
The statement provided a photo of Trone but no further information about him.
In the days following the shooting, authorities stated that they suspect a social media post may have led the assailant to Rock’s location. In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, Rock’s girlfriend disclosed the location and tagged the rapper.
According to authorities, the robber snatched several belongings from the victim and escaped in a car that was waiting in the parking lot. There were no other injuries in the incident, and Rock was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Rock was most known for his 2016 single “Selfish,” as well as his cameo performances on other artists’ tracks, including YFN Lucci’s “Everyday We Lit” and Ed Sheeran’s “Cross Me” featuring Chance the Rapper. His latest song, “Luv Me Again,” was released on Sept. 2.
