LAPD Say Instagram Post Of PnB Rock’s Location May Have Led To His Killing

The Los Angeles police are apparently examining if an Instagram post revealing the famous rapper PnB Rock's whereabouts contributed to his death.

The Los Angeles Times talked to Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore on Tuesday (Sept. 13), who stated the shooting occurred immediately after the rapper's location was identified in an Instagram post. As part of the murder inquiry, the LAPD is apparently investigating whether the post had a role in the Philadelphia rap-location crooner's eventual shooting and death.

[PnB Rock] "was with his family — with his girlfriend or some kind of friend — and as they're there, enjoying a simple meal, [he] was brutally attacked by an individual who apparently [came] to the location after a social media posting," Moore explained.

Hip Hop World Star PnB Rock allegedly got shot and died during an attempted robbery while eating at Roscoe's House of Chicken 'N Waffles in South Los Angeles with his girlfriend, who documented her meal and location on Instagram in a since-deleted post. The Los Angeles Police Department issued the following statement in response to the incident.

"On September 12, 2022, Southeast officers responded to a robbery just occurred radio call in the 100 block of Manchester Avenue," the statement starts. "The victim was eating at a table when he was approached by at least one suspect. The suspect brandished a firearm and demanded items from the victim. There was a verbal exchange, and the suspect shot the victim multiple times. The suspect appears to remove some items and fled the location. The suspect entered a vehicle waiting in the parking lot that fled in an unknown direction. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 2 p.m.."

There is no way to determine if the IG post was involved in the uncovering of PnB Rock without a suspect in custody. However, it appears that the authorities are investigating every possible route.

The demise of PnB Rock sent shockwaves across the hip-hop scene. Atlantic Records, the rapper's old label, posted a touching tribute to the late artist on Instagram.
