The 'Selfish' musician was at the restaurant accompanied by his girlfriend according to a security guard who was present at the eatery.

His girlfriend is reported as having posted an image onto Instagram, geotagging the pair's location.

The post has since been deleted.

"The victim was eating at a table when he was approached by one suspect," Los Angeles police Officer Norma Eisenman told Rolling Stone.

The suspect is then reported as having 'demanded items' from the rapper, pulling out a gun while doing so.

Los Angeles police Captain Kelly Muniz told The Los Angeles Times: "He shot the victim and ran out the side door to a getaway car and then fled the parking lot."

Eisenman added that the suspect 'removed some items from the victim' after firing at him.

PnB Rock was rushed to hospital, however he passed away not long after at 1.59PM.

The security guard recalled hearing around three shots.

He said: "I did what anybody, I hope, would do for me.

"I was telling him, ‘Be calm, be calm, get control of your breathing. Don’t trip on what you thought you seen, get control of your breathing.’

"And then his breathing declined. It went all the way down. I think he was gone. He was just gone. I was probably the last person he saw."

According to the security guard, he had to deliver first aid to the rapper himself.

Unfortunately, he wasn't able to get a look at the suspects.

He said: "The robbery happened fast. They took some items. He had multiple chains on.

"It was a blur. I had my glasses off. God put me in a position to not see s**t."

Security footage from inside the restaurant is being analysed by investigators from the Los Angeles Police Department to try and identify the shooter, according to a source from law enforcement.

Capt. Muniz said evidence was being processed by investigators last night.
