TV and radio personality DJ Megatron was fatally shot on Staten Island early Sunday morning, authorities and a family member said.
Witnesses heard a single shot at about 2 a.m. in the Clifton section of Staten Island. Megatron was pronounced dead on the scene a short time later from a gun shot to his stomach.
Law enforcement officials would not immediately confirm his identity and said they were investigating the shooting.
Keith Robinson, who identified himself as Megatron’s father-in-law, said his family was distraught.
“He was a good person,” Robinson said, visibly upset, “Everyone’s just shocked.”
The Staten Island performer, originally from Pennsylvania, was a regular on BET’s “106th and Park,” and also was heard on HOT 97.
And it doesn’t sound like anyone has a clue why this happened. RIP, young brother.
