LOS ANGELES – Court documents detail the moments leading up to the fatal shooting of rapper PnB Rock at a South LA eatery Sept. 12.
The filing gives the most accurate account of what led to the encounter with his killers that was captured on multiple surveillance cameras in and around the Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles where he was dining with his girlfriend.
Rakim Allen, 30, was shot multiple times and was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.
The felony complaint starts by describing a mystery man who has yet to be identified. Prosecutors say he saw Allen and his girlfriend arrive at Roscoe’s wearing expensive jewelry.
Court documents go on to say the mystery man waited outside until Freddie Lee Trone arrived. The two men reportedly had a conversation before Trone left and a short time later, returned to the restaurant with his son who prosecutors said was armed with a gun.
Trone then dropped off his son a short distance away from the restaurant. His son then allegedly entered the restaurant, walked directly to the table where the rapper and his girlfriend were dining and pointed a gun at them. Prosecutors allege the teen was heard saying “Give me all of your jewelry now!”
Moments later, the teen is accused of shooting the rapper in the chest and after he fell to the ground, prosecutors said the teen shot Allen two more times in the back.
The account debunks allegations that his killers were drew to the restaurant after Allen’s girlfriend posted a photo of her food to her social media, and there were also suggestions the killers were already in the parking lot before the couple arrived.
Freddie Lee Trone, his 17-year-old son, and his wife Shauntel Trone have all been charged with Allen’s death.
Freddie Lee Trone was charged with one count of murder and conspiracy to commit robbery and two counts of second-degree robbery. He was arrested in Las Vegas Thursday, where he awaits extradition to Los Angeles.
Shauntel Trone, the boy’s stepmom and Freddie Lee Trone’s wife, was arraigned Thursday in Compton. She pled not guilty to one count of accessory after the fact. Her involvement is unknown.
Trone’s son was charged with one count each of murder and conspiracy to commit robbery. He also faces two counts of second-degree robbery and was out on 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. His pretrial hearing is scheduled for Oct. 19.
