New court documents detail rapper PnB Rock's final moments before he died in Los Angeles on Sept. 12.

Charging paperwork shows the aspiring rapper and his girlfriend arrived at a Los Angeles restaurant before his killers got there.

The documents contradict an earlier report that the suspects were waiting in a vehicle outside the restaurant when the rapper arrived in his Bentley.

In the criminal complaint filed Thursday, Sept. 29, prosecutors say a "man in a red shirt" was outside the restaurant when he saw PnB Rock walk inside. The unidentified man noticed that PnB Rock was wearing expensive jewelry.

Prosecutors said the man lurked outside Roscoe's until Freddie Lee Trone arrived driving a black Buick Enclave. Trone parked, walked up to the man in red, and spoke with him near the entrance to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. He then returned to his car and drove off while PnB Rock was still inside the restaurant.

Meanwhile, Trone's 17-year-old son "armed himself with a handgun" and put on a mask, prosecutors say.

Freddie Lee Trone dropped the teen off near the strip mall where Roscoe's is located. The teenager approached Roscoe's, passed the man in red, and went inside. As he entered the restaurant, the man in red left the area.

The teen then approached the table where PnB Rock was eating with his girlfriend, Stephanie, and pointed the gun at him. According to prosecutors, the teen said, "Give me all of your jewelry, now!" He then shot PnB Rock in the chest while the rapper remained seated at the table. As PnB Rock fell to the floor, the teen allegedly shot him twice more in the back, prosecutors said.

He then turned to Stephanie and yelled, "Show me your hands! Give me that shit right now! I swear to God! I shoot you in the head!" He snatched her watch and then grabbed PnB Rock's jewelry.

Freddie Lee Trone drove into the parking lot outside Roscoe's as his son rushed outside and hopped into the car. They fled the restaurant, and parked the car several blocks from their residence, prosecutors alleged.

They later burned the car to get rid of evidence.

Police say father and son are members of the 87 Gangster Crips. Rock was allegedly robbed and killed because he did not "check in" with gang members who control the territory around the restaurant.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the armed robbery of a Brooklyn preacher during a live-stream sermon in July.

Bishop Lamor Whitehead and his wife were robbed of $1 million in jewelry at his rented storefront church in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn on July 24.

Live-stream video shows the bishop lay on the floor, raise his hands and say "Yo! All right, all right, all right" as three armed men entered the church and approached him. The suspects pointed guns at Whitehead and his wife, who was holding their infant daughter.

Whitehead was accused of staging the robbery as a stunt to draw attention to his ministry on Remsen Ave. near Avenue D.

On Wednesday, the NYPD announced Juwan Anderson and Say-Quan Pollack, both 23, were arrested in their Brooklyn homes. A third suspect is still at large.

"I'm extremely happy," Whitehead told the NY Daily News at an initial hearing for the suspects at Brooklyn Federal Court on Wednesday.

"My wife was crying when she heard the news. We're waiting for the last one to be arrested so we can move on with our life," he said.

"This was turned around from me being a victim, to a villain, and today, you know, God gave me and my family a victory," he said. "Because the tabloids and everybody has been talking about the narrative of the 'bling' pastor, and he had to have something to do with it."

A teenager and his mother are in custody in the murder of aspiring rapper PnB Rock (right) at a Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles in South Los Angeles.

The 17-year-old boy was arrested early Tuesday in Gardenia, police confirmed to Variety.

Also arrested was the teen's mother, Shauntel Trone, 38, on suspicion of accessory to murder, LAPD Capt. Kelly Muniz told the Los Angeles Times.

Police are still searching for the teen's father, Freddie Lee Trone, 40, who is believed to be the getaway driver.

Rock, 30, and his girlfriend were eating lunch when the teenager approached their table and demanded his jewelry.

Words were exchanged and the teen shot Rock multiple times before robbing him of several gold and diamond chains. The gunman also demanded property from Stephanie before fleeing out a side door and hopping into a waiting vehicle driven by Trone.

There are unconfirmed reports that Trone worked at the restaurant as a part-time cook.

Police say father and son are members of the 87 Gangster Crips street gang. The restaurant where Rock was fatally shot is in 87 GC territory.

It is a sign of respect for rappers to "check in" with gang members before venturing into their territory while wearing diamonds and other valuables.

TMZ reports that Trone and his son burned the getaway car in an effort to destroy evidence.

Trone was released from jail a month before the shooting.

The LAPD says Trone "should be considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, you are urged to call 911 for immediate assistance."

The Roscoe's House of Chicken & Waffles in South Central Los Angeles reopened for business 24 hours after rapper PnB Rock bled out on the floor from gunshot wounds.

Police say PnB Rock, real name Rakim Allen, was fatally shot while eating lunch with his girlfriend at the restaurant on Main and W. Manchester Avenue around 1:20 p.m. Monday.

Police say the 30-year-old rapper was approached by a lone gunman who demanded his expensive jewelry.

Words were exchanged and the gunman opened fire before robbing the victim and his girlfriend. The suspect fled the restaurant through a side door and hopped into a waiting vehicle.

Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said police are investigating whether the gunman was tipped off to Rock's location by an Instagram post.

Police said the gunman arrived in a vehicle moments after Rock's girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang dropped their location in an Instagram photo of her plate of uneaten chicken and waffles.

"While they were eating, at least one suspect approached them with a firearm and demanded the victim's property," LAPD Capt. Kelly Muniz told reporters at a press conference Tuesday. "At this point there was some sort of verbal exchange, we were not able to obtain audio in the investigation. Then, the suspect shot the victim several times. The victim then fell to the ground and the suspect took some items from the victim."

A restaurant employee tried to administer aid to the dying rapper.

"I ran in to see what was going on and this dude got shot three times in the chest," he said. "I start putting pressure on the hole that was closest to where I thought it would kill him. I did the same thing on the chest."

Rock was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

A week before he passed, Rock spoke with Instagram blogger DJ Akademiks about armed robberies by brazen gunmen in Los Angeles, which is soft on crime.

"It's so common," Rock said, before describing a botched robbery attempt for his jewels. "I never got robbed. Ever in my life."

"I ain't gonna say never. I don't like saying 'never.' I'm not superstitious, but I haven't been robbed... I'm not gonna put myself in those situations because I know what happens in those situations," he said.

Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said an Instagram post may have led a gunman to the location of aspiring rapper PnB Rock.

The 30-year-old was robbed and fatally shot while eating lunch with his girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, at the Roscoe's House of Chicken & Waffles on Main and Manchester in South Los Angeles just after 1:15 p.m. on Monday.

He "was with his family — with his girlfriend or some kind of friend of his — and as they're there, enjoying a simple meal, [he] was brutally attacked by an individual who apparently [came] to the location after a social media posting," Moore said.

Sibounheuang is the mother of one of Rock's two daughters. He reportedly chastised her in the past for sharing their location on social media.

Chief Moore said police are investigating whether his girlfriend's IG post led to the shooting. Moore said Rock was targeted for his gaudy jewelry. The gunman is still at large.

Police say the teenagers approached Robinson as he was leaving a business on the 1000 block of H Street NE. They brandished handguns and attempted to rob him.

Chief of Police Robert Contee told reporters the teens tried to steal Robinson's white Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

"What has been reported to us is that they may be between 15 and 17 years of age," Contee said.

Robinson fought with one of the teens and wrestled his gun away from him. The other suspect shot Robinson twice in the buttocks and knee.

Both suspects fled and jumped into a blue sedan that was reported stolen 2 days earlier. That car was later found abandoned in Prince George's County.

"The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle without obtaining any property. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries," D.C. police said in a news release.

Robinson's Hellcat, which was not stolen, was towed away from the crime scene late Sunday night.

A reward of $10,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

Robinson updated his Twitter followers on his condition Monday: "Surgery went well! Thanks for the prayers! God is great!"

"We would appreciate it if the public would allow us some privacy over the next week while we re-evaluate the situation, as this is an ongoing investigation. I assure you that we will share the outcomes, as the police department allows. But know for now that Scales is safe and recovering."

The robbery and shooting is the latest incidence of violence involving celebrities and pro athletes in Atlanta.

A woman is suing Bishop Lamor Whitehead for allegedly stealing her life savings. Bishop Whitehead is pictured above with his wife Asia K. DosReis-Whitehead.

Pauline Anderson is a former congregant who claims Whitehead fleeced her out of her life savings, according to court documents obtained by the NY Daily News.

Anderson, 56, says the flashy Bishop promised he would use her money to buy and renovate a house for her. Anderson said she asked the pastor to buy the home for her because she had a low credit score.

Instead, Whitehead allegedly disappeared with her $100,000 and never followed through on his promise.

Whitehead told her by text that he is "a man of integrity and you will not lose," according to her lawsuit.

After multiple unreturned phone calls, Whitehead text Anderson saying that the $100,000 check she gave him in 2021 was not as an investment, but a campaign donation while he was running for Brooklyn Borough president.

"And for the record anything that was given to me is a Donation unless it's attached to a contract!" Whitehead allegedly wrote. "I was making investments that's what I do!"

Anderson says Whitehead purchased a $4.4 million mansion for himself in an upscale New Jersey suburb, while telling her that he couldn’t repay her $100,000 life savings.

Whitehead was allegedly robbed of $1 million in jewelry while delivering a sermon at his church in Brooklyn, NY on Sunday.

Police released surveillance footage of three masked men seen entering the Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries in Canarsie around 11:14 a.m. Sunday.

In live-stream video inside the church, Whitehead dropped to the floor, saying "Alright, alright, alright," while holding his hands in the air.

Whitehead claims he and his wife were robbed of $1 million in jewelry, including a Rolex watch. The suspects, who arrived on foot, fled in a white Mercedes Benz.

In video posted on his Facebook page, Whitehead described how one of the suspects "put the gun to my back" and "had the gun in my 8-month-old’s face."

"They took my watch, took my jewelry, took my bishop’s ring, took my wedding band ... They took my bishop's cross, and then I had chains underneath my shirt," he said.

The Bishop is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the suspects.

A flashy New York City bishop who was robbed at gunpoint during a worship service says pastors should be allowed to arm themselves.

Bishop Lamor Whitehead and his wife were robbed of $400K in jewels while delivering a sermon at his church in Brooklyn, NY on Sunday.

Police said three armed men burst into the church around 11:15 a.m., and "displayed firearms and demanded property" from the 44-year-old bishop and his wife, 38.

"When I see them come into the sanctuary with their guns, I told everybody to get out, everybody just get out," Whitehead recalled in an Instagram video posted after the robbery. "I didn't know if they wanted to shoot the church up or if they were just coming for a robbery."

Video of the assault went viral on social media and aired on local news outlets. In the video, Whitehead can be heard saying, "all right, all right," before putting his hands up and dropping to the floor.

The gunmen fled in a Mercedes Benz, police say. They are still at large.

Guns are banned in NY, but that doesn't stop criminals from getting their hands on one.

Whitehead is known for his flashy persona, custom jewelry and loud tailored suits.

In May, Whitehead negotiated the surrender of a murder suspect, then drove the suspect to a police precinct in his tricked out Rolls-Royce.

Nayson White, 25, and Allen Algarin, 23, were arrested in Georgia and extradited back to the Bronx Wednesday to face charges.

The arrests were announced on Thursday, according to the NY Daily News. The two suspects were originally arrested on a misdemeanor gun possession charge in McDuffie County, Ga., on June 29, police said.

Vontae, real name Avanti Frowner, 27, was attacked and shot multiple times in a Bronx pharmacy by four males who robbed him of his cash and a signature nameplate and chain.

"He look like trouble," a pharmacy employee told NBC, referring to Vontae. "I saw that he had a lot of money. They looked like they [were] fighting or arguing, I don't know. I saw that one of them had a gun. I went back there to the pharmacist screaming, 'We have to move, have to move, because he have a gun, he have a gun!'"

The employee said Vontae begged for his life. "He said, 'Please, please, we can talk, we can talk."

Disturbing surveillance footage shocked viewers and went viral on social media.

On June 23, police arrested River Jones, an 18-year-old college student, and charged him with murder and gun possession.

Police suspect Jones (pictured top right) is the trigger man who shot and killed Vontae senselessly after robbing him.

Two more suspects are still at large, police say.

"They don't need to be on the streets no more – ever!" Vontae's dad, Roger Frowner, 56, told The NY Post. "If they kill somebody in broad daylight, inside of a store, they are treacherous."
