A 17-year-old boy and his stepmother have been arrested in connection with the murder of rapper PnB Rock.
Rock was shot and killed at a Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant in South Los Angeles earlier this month.
The teenage boy was arrested in Lawndale and booked on suspicion of murder. His stepmother was identified by police as 32-year-old Shauntel Trone and was booked on suspicion of being an accessory to murder.
A third suspect, an adult male suspect, Freddie Lee Trone, is the father of the teen in custody and is still at large. The Los Angeles Police Department described him as “armed and dangerous.” They say Trone is a longtime member of a gang in South LA.
Last week, the LAPD has said it was looking into whether an Instagram post led the killers to the rapper’s whereabouts.
Police say the teen pulled the trigger but that his father was the getaway driver.
Anyone with information about Trone’s whereabouts is urged to call LAPD homicide detectives at (323) 786-5146.
