Philadelphia Rapper PnB Rock has reportedly died at the hospital after a shooting broke out at a Los Angeles staple.
According to an earlier report from TMZ, the 30-year-old rapper was shot at a South Los Angeles location of Roscoe’s House of Chicken’N Waffles around 1:15 p.m. Monday.
The rapper, whose real name was Rakim Hasheem Allen, was dining with his girlfriend at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles at 106 W. Manchester Ave. when the shooting occurred, TMZ first reported.
The musician’s girlfriend posted a photo of her food at Roscoe’s and tagged the restaurant minutes before the attack, according to multiple reports.
In a video shared on social media, a witness claims the robbery was related to jewelry, a motive the Los Angeles Times also reported, as the unidentified shooter reportedly took all of the rapper’s jewelry before fleeing the scene.
Grαphic video shared online showed PnB Rock lying in a pool of bl00d inside the restaurant.
The video then shows the dad of two surrounded by a small group of people, one of whom appears to be a security guard, who can be heard shouting out his age and asking where he had left his phone.
Before the video ends, one person is seen turning his body over, in an apparent attempt to check on him.

“It is a bold crime and it’s tragic that two people come to eat and enjoy their meal, and they’re get robbed while patronizing a restaurant,” said Los Angeles Police Department Capt. Kelly Muniz.
Signed with Atlantic Records, PnB Rock made headlines in 2016 when his hit single “Selfish” was named 51st on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
