The news was released on Wednesday, Sept. 28, two weeks after the killing.

As has reported, PnB Rock (whose name is Rakim Allen) was shot while having lunch with his girlfriend. The gunman is said to have robbed the rapper, taking some of his and his girlfriend’s property.

According to KTLA, police believe the man’s social media fingerprint may lead them to where he is but are still cautious about his detainment.
