The suspects in PnB Rocks’ tragic murder have finally faced charges.

Solving PnB Rock Murder

The music listening world stopped Sep 12 when R&B rapper/singer PnB Rock was shot dead during a robbery gone wrong. The 30-year-old was enjoying a meal with his girlfriend at an L.A. Roscoes Chicken and Waffles when two men entered, demanding the couple’s belongings. That day, the two gunmen escaped the restaurant while Rock subsequently succumbed to his injuries.

Now, we finally have details on who pulled the trigger. L.A. County District Attorney George Gascón delivered the news this Thursday (Sep 29) that an anonymous 17-year-old and his father, Freddie Lee Trone, faced the charges of two counts of second-degree robbery, in addition to one count of murder and conspiracy.

The law enforcement arrested PnB Rock’s murder suspect in Las Vegas only hours after the announcement broke.

Strangely, PnB Rocks’ demise seems to be a family affair. The 17-year-old’s stepmother, Shauntel Trone, has also faced the charges of one count of accessory in direct connection to the shooting.

The Failed Plot

LAPD had confirmed Trone and his son were sitting in the restaurant parking lot before PnB Rock pulled up. This conflicts with the standard theory Rock’s girlfriend contributed to the murder with a post on her Instagram story showing their location. Since the suspects have been taken into custody and more details are revealed, many call for public apologies to the grieving woman.

Apparently, the young man acted as the gunman, while his dad played the role of a getaway driver. The pair burned the car following the crime, but this didn’t stop law enforcement from pinning them.

For fans and family of PnB Rock, this development, in his case, brings justice a little bit closer to light.
