Proof’s Suspected Killer Turns Himself in to Police

Proof3.jpgAccording to the Detroit Free Press, a man police suspect of fatally shooting D12 member Proof early Tuesday morning voluntarily turned himself into authorities yesterday (April 12). The man, 28-year-old Detroit resident Mario Etheridge, was working as a bouncer at the CCC Club where the shootings occurred. Police have confirmed that Proof pistol whipped and then fired first at an unarmed 35-year-old man named Keith Bender, shooting him in the head and leaving him in critical condition. Etheridge, who is also Bender’s cousin, is suspected of then shooting Proof three times. “The understanding of every witness we’ve spoken to is that Proof pulled out a weapon,” Etheridge’s lawyer told the Free Press. “It was Proof that shot the first shot. Proof shot Keith in the face. And Keith was unarmed.” His lawyer also maintains that Etheridge did nothing illegal, and they plan to cooperate with authorities. A Detroit Police spokesperson has confirmed that if Proof was killed by someone trying to protect himself or others, he may not be charged with a crime.

    God is right, just have a read of some of the shit that people are writing. It’s called english ffs people and it aint that complicated. If you seriously can’t string a single sentence together without using rediculous gangster talk to try and seem more important- either pick up a thesaurus or go back to elementary school.

  • kay kay

    it was a set up you would have to be a fool not to see that . A nigga will
    try rob a nigga just because he is a petty dope seller so what you think some one would do over a famous rapper
    in a local club .where were the club owners why did he shoot in the first place could it have been he peeped out the set up and knew they were about to hurt and possibly kill him . please if you cant see this with a blindfold on you gotta be a blind mf i mean ust think he got so much to loose a broke jealous nigga aint got nothing to loose use your brain on this one jealous had him strapped and he did not get and make the intelligent business moves he made to not realize a huge threat to his life and safety . and the hater he killed was not guilty if he was a veteran its almost ceartain that he killed
    for a cause that did not serve his family and community think think think think people please for once think and rever our kings dont bury them.

  • kay kay

    i meant that thaT SO CALLED WAR VETERAN WAS NOT INNOCENT IN THE LEAST
    HE WAS A MURDERER ALSO FOR UNJUSTICE SO REVERE OUR TRUE KINGS WHO TRY TO KEEP IT TRUE TO HIS HOOD DONT HATE HIM IT WAS PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHO LOVED PROOF HE MASE MISTAKES BUT WHO DIDN’T

  • openeyes

    The ignorance that seeps out of these comments enrages me. It’s sad how people commenting have not even been talking according to the facts. They just talk up a storm trying to create an image of their idols without using common sense or facts. Everything they’ve written is all bullshit that they themselves like to walk around believing. Learn to read the newspaper and get the story straight before mouthing off saying who fucked with who. Stupid fucks who are so ignorant of reality, that’s why you will never amount to anything in the real world and will only live life dreaming up a gangster’s life.

    who the fuck cares about whos reppin who stfu this is not about yourselves. so quick to draw guns, knuckle it up bitches.why wouldnt the the industry blame it on rap or whatever, this is a tribute to proof and people are talking bout killin each other over gunit/gunot….
