    Breaking News: D12 rapper Proof killed in shooting at afterhours nightclub

    BY BEN SCHMITT
    FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER

    Rapper Proof of the hip-hop group D12 was shot and killed this morning at an illegal afterhours club on Eight Mile, police said.
    Proof, whose real name is Deshaun Holton, was dead on arrival at Conner Creek Medical Center in Detroit, according to a spokeswoman for St. John Health System. He was 32.
    Proof was among the most pivotal players on the Detroit hip-hop scene, and revered as one of the best freestyle MCs in the city. He befriended Eminem long before he was a houshold name, and was a nearly constant presence as the rapper rose to superstardom. He toured with Eminem as his on-stage hype man, was a member of his group D12, had a bit role in the "8 Mile" movie and served as the best man at his wedding in January.
    An unidentified 35-year-old man, who was shot along with Proof, is in critical condition at Detroit's St. John Hospital.
    Police were called to the shootings around 5 a.m, following reports of a fight and shots fired.
    The club where it occurred is called 3C, and it's at 8 Mile near Hayes. The club isn't illegal but it was operating illegally after hours.
    This is the second shooting involving Eminem's entourage in three months.
    Another Eminem pal and rapper Obie Trice was shot and wounded New Year's Eve while driving along the Lodge Freeway.
    Anyone with information on the shootings is asked to call Detroit Police at 313-596-2260.

    DAMN thats messed up. I can't help of thinking how traumatized I was when I first saw that Toy Soldiers video, It was so eerie. Now it came through. Thats really killing me inside. I can't even begin to think how Eminem and the D12 family must feel, sp much as his real famliy. My blessings and Condolences go out to them.

    MTV's article

    D12's Proof Shot And Killed At Detroit Club
    04.11.2006 9:46 AM EDT


    Police questioning witnesses, searching for shooter.

    Proof, a member of the Eminem-fronted Detroit-based hip-hop sextet D12, was killed early Tuesday morning outside a Detroit nightclub in a shooting that left another man in critical condition.

    According to NBC News affiliate WDIV, Proof (real name: DeShaun Holton) suffered a gunshot wound to the head at the CCC Club on East Eight Mile Road, near Gratiot Avenue. By the time police arrived at the scene just after 5 a.m., the club — which was operating illegally, after hours — had been cleared out, but several witnesses have come forward to discuss the incident with investigators. A spokesperson for the Detroit Police Department said only that "an altercation occurred [inside the club], and shots rang out," but would not discuss the shooting further as the 32-year-old rapper's next of kin have not yet been notified of his murder.

    Both victims (the other man's name has not been released) were transported to area hospitals; Proof was rushed to St. John Holy Cross Hospital, while the second victim, who is 35 and also sustained a gunshot to the head, was taken to St. John Hospital, where he's listed as being in critical condition. Proof was pronounced dead on arrival.

    Proof, Eminem's longtime friend, appeared in the film "8 Mile" as Lil' Tic; he also served as Eminem's best man when the rapper remarried his wife Kim Mathers in January (see "Eminem Remarries Ex-Wife Kim Mathers"). Eminem filed for divorce last week.

    Police are searching for the suspected gunman; a description has not been made available. Detectives have asked that anyone with any information on the shooting come forward.

    MTV News will have more on this developing story throughout the day.
