It has been reported that Megatron was down the street from his home when he was approached and shot in the torso. The 32-year-old DJ, whose real name was Corey McGriff, died on the street. So far, no witnesses have come forward.
New York’s Daily News reported on comments left on Megatron’s YouTube page about three months ago. The comments were left by a person claiming that Megatron owed them money, however police have said that Mega did not look to be a victim of a robbery and could not say whether the YouTube commenter was an actual suspect.
Police are asking anyone with information to come forward. —Rob Markman
