LOS ANGELES – Chilling new details about the final moments of rapper PnB Rock’s life have emerged in court documents as a family of three, including a 17-year-old boy, became the focus of the investigation into the ‘homicide.
Now authorities are looking for a fourth suspect who may have informed the family of the rapper’s whereabouts.
The rapper, whose real name is Rakim Allen, was robbed and shot inside Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in South Los Angeles in broad daylight in front of his girlfriend, terrified customers and staff on September 12. He was rushed to a local hospital where he died.
Freddie Lee Trone, his son and his wife Shauntel Trone have all been identified by the Los Angeles Police Department as suspects in the murder of PnB Rock.
Allen, born and raised in Philadelphia, was 30 at the time of his death.

The felony complaint begins by describing a mysterious man who has yet to be identified. Prosecutors say he saw Allen and his girlfriend arrive at Roscoe’s house with expensive jewelry.
Court documents say the mystery man waited outside until Freddie Lee Trone arrived. The two reportedly had a conversation before Trone left and shortly after returned to the restaurant with his son, who prosecutors say was armed with a gun.
Trone then dropped off his son a short distance from the restaurant. His son then allegedly walked into the restaurant, walked straight to the table where the rapper and his girlfriend were dining, and pointed a gun at them. Prosecutors allege the teenager was overheard saying “Give me all your jewelry now!”
Moments later, the teenager is charged with shooting the rapper in the chest and after he fell to the ground, prosecutors say the teenager shot Allen twice more in the back.
The timeline detailed in the complaint says the teen then pointed a gun at Allen’s girlfriend, Steph, saying “Show me your hands, give me that — right now. I swear to God! I’m shooting you in the head!”
The teenager then allegedly robbed her and took her jewellery. As the rapper lay dying on the restaurant floor, prosecutors said the teenager robbed him and took his chains, watch and removed his rings from his fingers.
The Complaint timeline ends with Freddie Lee Trone returning to Roscoe to pick up his son before returning home. Before heading home, they parked a few blocks away and the teenager kicked off his shoes and shirt.
Father and teenage son face murder charges in PnB Rock’s death
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Police Department released a photo of Freddie Lee Trone, who has been identified as one of the suspects in the rapper’s brutal murder. Freddie Lee Trone’s 17-year-old son and his 32-year-old wife, Shauntel Trone, were arrested while still at large.
The LA County District Attorney’s Office announced murder charges against the teenager and his father.
Her son, who is unlikely to be publicly identified because he is a minor, has been charged with one count of murder and conspiracy to commit robbery. He also faces two counts of second-degree robbery and was on probation at the time of the shooting. He was wearing an ankle monitor which was apparently unguarded at the time of the fatal shooting. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 19.
Freddie Lee Trone has been charged with one count of murder and conspiracy to commit robbery and two counts of second-degree robbery. He was arrested Thursday in Las Vegas, where he awaits extradition to Los Angeles.
Shauntel Trone, the boy’s stepmother and wife of Freddie Lee Trone, was arrested in Compton on Thursday. She pleaded not guilty to one count of aiding and abetting after the fact. His involvement is unknown.
PnB Rock was best known for his 2016 hit “Selfish” and for making guest appearances on songs by other artists such as YFN Lucci’s “Everyday We Lit” and Ed Sheeran’s “Cross Me” featuring Chance the Rapper. Her latest song, “Luv Me Again,” was released on September 2.
