DJ Khaled and his fiancée Nicole Tuck are mourning the death of Tuck’s younger brother Jonathan, who was allegedly murdered in a drug deal gone awry. He was 25.
TMZ reported that Tuck’s brother was shot in the face at a Bronx apartment on Sunday (Feb. 4). He allegedly got into an argument there, before he was shot. He was then taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Jonathan Tuck’s longtime friend Brandon Davis lamented the incident during an interview with the New York Daily News. “He’s a good guy,” he said. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There was no reason for him to be there.”
Khaled was in Minneapolis for the Super Bowl at the time of the shooting. Sources say that Nicole Tuck and her mother went to the Bronx after learning of the incident.
Law enforcement officials are now questioning a 34-year-old man who was reportedly involved. DJ Khaled has yet to address the incident publicly.
