Family of Three Charged With Murder of PnB Rock

3:18 PM PDT on September 29, 2022

    Three family members were charged with the murder of PnB Rock, also known as Rakim Allen. Rock was fatally shot earlier this month and robbed for his jewelry while dining at a Roscoe's House of Chicken ‘N Waffles on Manchester Avenue in South LA with his girlfriend, shortly after their location was tagged on social media.

    “The accused individuals’ alleged actions, in this case, were heartless and cruel and robbed the world of Mr. Allen’s talents.” Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement.

    Freddie Lee Trone, 40, was charged with one count of murder and conspiracy to commit robbery as well as two counts of second-degree robbery. An unidentified minor believed to be Freddie Lee Trone’s son was also charged with one count of murder and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery, in addition to two counts of second-degree robbery. The step-mother of the unidentified minor, Shauntel Trone, 38, faces one count of “accessory after the fact.”

    Shauntel Trone and the minor were both taken into custody yesterday by a “federal taskforce,” according to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). As of Thursday morning, Freddie Lee Trone remains on the run. “He should be considered armed and dangerous,” the LAPD said in a statement on Wednesday.

    The L.A. Times reported that Freddie Lee Trone had been convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm in February of 2021. On August 7, 2021, he was arrested and later sentenced to 486 days in jail for violating his probation, The Times reported, before being released in March. Prior to that, Freddie Lee Trone had been convicted of driving a car with wanton disregard for public safety and assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury.
