The future brother-in-law of DJ Khaled was shot and killed in the Bronx on Sunday night (Sept. 4). Initially reported as a drug deal gone wrong, it turns out it was a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
According to the New York Daily News, Jonathan Tuck, 25, was shot in the Belmont section of the Bronx. He was taken to St. Barnabas hospital where he was declared dead.
Tuck is the younger brother of Nicole Tuck, DJ Khaled’s fiancee. Initially, it was reported that he was trying to acquire marijuana when he was shot in an apartment about a half mile from his own home. However, per TMZ, Tuck was in the apartment to watch the Super Bowl when an attempted robbery occurred.
Tuck was shot in the back of the head while trying to defend himself.
A 34-year-old man was taken into custody but police have not charged anyone with Tuck’s murder, yet.
Our condolences to the Tuck family.
