Original article:

Rapper PnB Rock, 30, was reportedly shot while dining at a Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘N Waffles in Los Angeles Monday afternoon.

The Philadelphia-born rapper, whose real name is Rakim Allen, was dining with his girlfriend, who posted a now deleted, location-tagged photo of their meal to her Instagram account.

LAPD said the call for a shooting was received at 1:23 p.m. at the Roscoe’s on South Maine Street and West Manchester Avenue.

Video posted to social media showed Allen was still visibly moving when first responders arrived, albeit in a pool of blood, before being taken to a local hospital.

No other diners were targeted and according to TMZ, the suspect fled with pieces of Allen’s jewelry.

As of this writing, authorities have not yet provided a description of the suspect, nor the status of Allen’s condition.
