Proof4.jpgKeith Bender, the 35-year-old man police believe D12 member Proof shot before being killed himself, died early this morning (April 18) in a Detroit hospital. Police believe that an altercation in Detroit’s CCC Club led to Proof shooting Bender in the head, after which Bender’s cousin, Mario Etheridge, a bouncer, shot and killed Proof. Bender had been on life support at St. John Hospital since the incident occurred early last week. While Etheridge faces two gun-related charges, police said that their investigation into the crimes is still ongoing.
