Southern California authorities announced Wednesday a 17-year-old boy and his stepmother were arrested in connection with the brutal killing of rapper PnB Rock that occurred during a robbery in broad daylight at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in South Los Angeles, while a third suspect is on the run.
Investigators with the Los Angeles Police Department said multiple suspects were wanted in the homicide investigation. They believe that it was the teen who approached the rapper and his girlfriend, demanded their jewelry and proceeded to shoot him several times in front of the rapper’s girlfriend, terrified patrons and staff.
The teen suspect was arrested in Lawndale on a murder charge and his name has not been released. Authorities said he was out on parole or probation at the time of the shooting. He was wearing an ankle monitor that apparently was not being monitored at the time of the deadly shooting.
In addition, the Los Angeles Police Department identified Freddie Lee Trone, the boy's father, as one of the suspects and released his photo hoping that someone will come forward with information or will inform authorities of his whereabouts.
LAPD officials also announced a second arrest Wednesday. Shauntel Trone, 32, was arrested in Gardena and was booked for accessory to murder. Shauntel Trone is the boy's stepmother and Freddie Trone's wife.
Investigators believe the family may have been tipped about the rapper's location.
