What Were You Thinking? Weed-Hustling Pace University Student Gunned Down By Real Life Goons

- By Bossip Staff

You’d think anyone attending a private university and living in a $3000-a-month apartment would have no reason to dabble in drug sales, right?

Pace University student Max Moreno thought hustling weed was just the extracurricular activity he needed as he wrapped up his last year of college. Unfortunately, he paid a dear price for his lack of judgement.

A pot-peddling Pace University student was gunned down in his luxury off-campus apartment yesterday by two thugs who burst in following a drug deal.

The assassins took 21-year-old Max Moreno to his bedroom and coldly shot him in the forehead after he refused to give them money. They then left with a mysterious locked box, police said.

Police are investigating whether Moreno, a small-time pot dealer, was set up by another couple, a man and woman who have yet to be found.

After the couple left, the assassins burst in and executed him.

The NYPD said it got a call about gunfire around midnight on the 37th floor of the 51-story tower, where one-bedroom apartments start at $2,985 a month.

Moreno had no criminal record, but people who knew him said he dealt drugs.

SMH. Just goes to show you: it all catches up with you eventually. R.I.P.

    Just horrible. So violent.

  • rosa marie

    This is a perfect example of male bitterness in our community. Did they have to kill him? Just pistol whip him and steal his money, idiots. Then the overworked police wouldn’t even be sweating it, robbing a drug dealer is no biggie to them. Now these fools have a murder charge. We have our share of b777tch like men in this world.

    • ItsBarbieB*tch

      “male bitterness in our community”

      Just whose community are you referring too? Your immediate neighborhood or the black community – you know- since this is primarily a BLACK gossip site?

      Because I never saw a reference to black people in the article.

    If you are not broke don’t get into the hustle game because real thirsty thugs will kill you just for being greedy.

    And in my opinion which is ignorant he got what he deserved he should have been happy with his life.

    He was committing one of the seven deadly sins: Greed which got him murked.

  • Optimus Prime-Real Estate

    I dont feel bad for him. I feel bad for his family. Everybody wants to be a ganster, but nobody ever wants to die as the song says. Illegal drugs, weapons, and money are the main culprit in these types of horrid situations. He knew this. But he wanted to be a privileged white guy in real life, and play Scarface on the side for fun. It’s no game. Prayers to his family.

  • It Is What It Is!

    I bet you, the theives were black. black people always find the easy way to make money. they don’t want to work because they think their better then that. they are the poorest people in America. they may have swag, but what the fucc is swag if you live dirty in this lifetime. go to school, get a job, then try to own ur own business. Damn i swear sometime Ni@@ers make me sick. I can’t stand them at all. Everytime I see one walking by me, I kknow for a fact he is a loser.

    • WOW!


    • miamac

      thank you for making blacks everywhere feel superior; because you sure are ignorant — no, ig-ga-nut!

    • msme

      U are a loser for making the comments that u made. Go to school get a job own ur own business??? My father owns his own business, who happens to be black, my mom is a RN and I myself make a substantial amount of money, so black people are not the most poor. I’ve seen all kinds and colors of poor, starting with WHITE people. U will always be a loser that’s why u let something like the color of a persons skin determine everything about u IDIOT!

  • kingsley

    he is not black why is this on bosssip????? BLACK GOSSIP right???

  • A Mess wants to know where is her comment?

    @ Slide your right, people even have camera phones and can record anything at the drop of a hat. Hustling is not like it use to be.

  • ...

    I knew Max personally and he was a really good person. These articles are making him out to be some serious drug dealer. When in reality, he was probably the friendliest and most genuine person i have ever met. He wasn’t trying to be a “gangster” or anything. He was in college trying to do something with his life. This was just a terrible case of ‘being in the wrong place at the wrong time’.

    • re@lly????

      This is a tragedy and may he rest in peace. But how was he in the wrong place at the wrong time? He was in his apartment selling. Cant be in that type of business and not expect such things

    this was my friend. RIP. love u max, everyone in matawan, nj is crying for u as we speak.

  • ayo

    Even though, he was doing something not so good, he did not deserve to die at all. i mean he is in college and not just some bomb. as a matter of fact, A lot of rich kids in college enjoy selling weed part time for some weird reason. I don’t even think they make money of it but they kinda consirder it cool

  • hi

    this is the worst article known to man

  • TheTruth

    DRUGS=DEATH. This story has been told thousands upon thousands of times. He committed the cardinal sin of drug dealing: you do not keep your stash together with your bank and from the same location where everyone knows that. He may have lived in a luxury high rise but there are projects near there (LES) and Brooklyn thugs have always come down to hustle in downtown Manhattan. He probably had a rep among the college kids and at parties where all these kids (students and non-students alike hang out) and word probably got down to some really grimy cats who will do anything for a dollar, even for weed. The perps look at him like “….high rise building, looks like he got some bank…no look outs – easy mark!” This poor kid thought that being in college insulated him but like Treach said “If you ain’t from the Ghetto stay da F**k out da ghetto cause you wouldn;t understand the ghetto” His family and friends did not deserve the pain that this kid brought upon them for being so stupid
