Police arrested a teenager and his stepmother in connection to the murder of PnB Rock, but a third suspect remained on the run.
“On Tuesday September 27, 2022, the Los Angeles Police Department’s LAPD/FBI Taskforce, Operations-South Bureau LAPD/ATF Taskforce, Operations-South Bureau’s Community Safety Unit, and South Bureau Homicide Division, coordinated the arrests of two people believed to be involved in the murder of Rakim Allen,” the LAPD revealed on Wednesday (September 28).
The teen, whose name wasn’t disclosed, was arrested in Lawndale, California. He was charged with murder in the shooting death of PnB Rock.
His stepmother Shauntel Trone was arrested in Gardena, California. The 38-year-old woman was booked for accessory to murder.

The LAPD asked anyone with information about Trone’s whereabouts to contact South Bureau Homicide Divisions Detectives Nellie Knight or Matthew Clark at 323-786-5146. Police also accept anonymous tips via LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477) or www.lacrimestoppers.org.
