RIP DJ Megatron
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of a respected and beloved member of the DJ community. The NY Daily News has confirmed that DJ Megatron, whom you may recognize from his guest appearances on BET's "106th & Park" and as well as New York's HOT 97 was was fatally shot on Staten Island early Sunday morning. 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. A friend who arrived at the scene at about 4 a.m. said she talked to him a few hours earlier. "He just called me," Lisa Torres said, "He asked me if I was going to [a friend's] party." She became inconsolable as the news sank in. "He's right there on the ground. I can't believe this," she screamed as she broke down in tears. "You're lying, you're lying!That's not Megatron right there!" Megatron was discribed as "a good dude" and "a hard worker" by all those who knew him. My condolences go out to his loved ones. RIP Mega!
