A suspect in the incident pulled out a firearm and ordered PnB Rock to hand over items, Muniz said, adding the suspect “shot the victim and ran out the side door to a getaway car and then fled the parking lot.”
Insiders told the newspaper that the musician was targeted because he was wearing jewelry at the time.
The shooting victim was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead at 1:59 p.m., Muniz told the outlet.
LAPD police sources said investigators were examining security footage of the facility, in addition to nearby businesses, to identify the suspect in the fatal shooting and whether they left the scene on foot or in a vehicle.
