Sad news, as a Georgia newlywed was shot dead inside his home earlier today. Michael Phillips served as a bodyguard for rapper Future until 2011, and police are currently investigating who is responsible for his murder. Via Fox 5 Atlanta:

Clayton County police are trying to find out who murdered a young husband who was awaiting the birth of his first child.

Police told FOX 5 Michael Phillips, 27, was at home with his wife on Bridlewood Court in Jonesboro when he was gunned down in the foyer around 1:05 Monday afternoon.

“Some of the neighbors heard some arguing and some gunshots. We are still interviewing them and trying to piece together what happened,” Lt. Frank Thomas of the Clayton County Police Department said.

Family and friends said Phillips had recently married. They said he and his new wife were expecting their first child. They also said Phillips was a bodyguard for the rapper “Future”.

SMH. So sad for his pregnant widow.
