Authorities apprehended a third suspect in the PnB Rock murder case on Thursday (September 29).
The Los Angeles Police Department announced a task force arrested Freddie Lee Trone in Las Vegas. The 40-year-old man was charged with murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.
Earlier this week, Trone’s teenage son and wife were arrested in connection to PnB Rock’s murder.
The teen, whose name hasn’t been disclosed, was also charged with murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. Trone’s 38-year-old wife Shauntel was charged with accessory after the fact.
PnB Rock, whose real name was Rakim Allen, was fatally shot at a Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant in Los Angeles on September 12. He was 30.
“The murder of Mr. Allen dimmed a bright light in the lives of his fans, friends and most importantly his family,” Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said. “The accused individuals’ alleged actions in this case were heartless and cruel and robbed the world of Mr. Allen’s talents.”
Gascón added, “I thank the investigators who presented the case to my office. As we do every single day, we will work diligently to make sure that those responsible for taking the life of an innocent victim are held accountable.”
