So sad!

The Daily News is reporting that the future brother-in-law of DJ Khaled has been shot to death in a Bronx apartment.

Jonathan Tuck (the younger brother of Nicole Tuck, the musical superstar’s fiancée) was attempting to purchase marijuana, when someone shot him in the face about 9:15 PM on Sunday in a Belmont apartment, less than a half mile from his home, police say.

The 25-year-old passed away at St. Barnabas Hospital.

The second-floor apartment on Washington Ave. near E. 185th St, remained roped off as of Monday night, as officers continued their investigation into the shooting; they believe Tuck argued with his attacker before the shooting but it's not clear if that quarrel stemmed from the alleged weed deal.

"He's a good guy,” the victim’s buddy Brandon Davis shared. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There was no reason for him to be there.”

Davis, who coaches football, said he first met Tuck in 2011 back when Tuck played defensive end for the Bronx Colts. 


The duo were supposed to watch the Super Bowl together Sunday night, but Tuck never showed, Davis said. At 4 AM on Monday, Tuck's girlfriend called with the tragic news.

"All I can think about is I'm sitting here celebrating football and my friend is across town dying," he explained. 

Aw.



Tuck and his sister were close, Davis claims, though he refused to speak up on how Nicole Tuck or DJ Khaled were coping with the horrible news.
DJ Khaled was in Minneapolis for the Super Bowl when Tuck was killed, social media posts reveal.

Police sources said Nicole Tuck and her mother rushed to the Bronx after learning of the shooting.

Nicole Tuck did not return messages seeking comment and a representative for Khaled declined comment on Monday night.

Family friends crowded Tuck's apartment Monday night to mourn his death.


"He was a good man. He leaves a daughter ... He was working overnight stock in New Jersey," noted on unnamed family friend. "We're hurting. We're grieving. We're devastated."


Police took a 34-year-old man into custody for questioning Sunday. As of Monday though, no one had been charged with Tuck's killing.

Davis, who is the godfather of Tuck's 1-year-old daughter, said his family deserves to know what happened in the Bronx apartment.

Yup.


"He was my friend. I loved that guy. I've argued with him, I've bled with him. We've talked, prayed and cried. The good and bad, that's my family”.

"I just want to know what this was about. His mother deserves that. His father, his sister, his daughter deserves that. I hope they find the answer."

We do too.



Sending our condolences and prayers.
