According to Capt Kelly Muniz of the Los Angeles Police Department, a suspect approached a couple eating at Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles and demanded they hand over personal belongings.
This resulted in “some sort of verbal exchange,” she informed reporters on the scene before the victim was shot many times and knocked to the ground.
She claimed that after “removing goods from the victim,” the suspect sped off to a waiting getaway vehicle.
According to US media, law enforcement officials have established that the rapper was the attack’s intended victim.

While everything was going on, Cardi B confronted those who had accused Stephanie Sibounheuang, PnB Rock’s girlfriend, of uploading the picture.
