BET Television Host Killed In Shooting

A 32-year-old urban radio and TV personality was shot to death outside his Staten Island home in what police believe was a robbery attempt.

Radio and BET Television segment host DJ Megatron was shot while heading to a store near his house around two o'clock Sunday morning.

Police say the actor and DJ, born Corey McGriff, was found dead with a gunshot wound to his chest just a few doors down from his home. Investigators believe McGriff was talking on his telephone and may have been distracted just before the shooting.

McGriff worked for several hip-hop and R & B radio stations before becoming a regular figure on BET.

No arrests have been made.

    Once again.....Here we go, to all those that made an ignorant comment about this story. You are inhumane, direspectful to the family of the victum, and you have no comman sense or morals!!!! This man was going to the store (leaving his home).Other sources I read stated he had just gotten off from work (DJ-ing..for those that dont know what that is....its someone who plays music at any event.) The story never stated that this was gang or drug-related!!! Read and comprehend...I think they taught you that in grammer-school!!! Or maybe not... People should be more considerant of other's lose reguardless of their color or background. But ignorance is a bliss...and some of us are full of it.... I wonder who we can blame for your stupidity???

    Jeb- I regulate my conduct and language out of courtesy and logical thinking, not by any "system". You do of course have free speech and if you feel that you can win an argument using racial slurs and calling people names, you certainly have the constitutional freedoms to do so. I doubt that behavior will get you what you really want, however. You must be frustrated and angry. That must be horrible.

    re/fact bringer. just because you work in a socialistic system and cannot express opposing views that may offend the obammy tribe, and you willifully accept your right to free speech is prohibited, does question your education,mental capacity and logical reasoning ability. maybe you were educated under an uneducated system and you do not know the difference.did your teacher spell foor as flo?

      True story. I had a high school english teacher that corrected me to say "arah" for the word "are". I refused and was sent to the principal, a black man. To his credit he supported me. I always liked him. Still I did poorly in english that year? Wonder why?

    Jeb- nope. I'm definitely employed, very well educated, and I'm not a democrat. I also work in professions where derogatory remarks about racial ethnic culture is not at all acceptable. I don't mean to offend your sensibilities, but not everyone against racial generalization is democrat and using welfare. Good luck with your own competency, though.

    How dare all of you insensitive, cold, heartless people saying "who cares?" Do you know him personally? No, I don't think so. YOu have no right to be so childish and ignorant. If you don't care then why did you read the entire article and bother to comment. Get a life and grow up!

    First, I would like to send my condolences out to his family and friends. Next, to all these people up here saying no lost or who cares, the next time someone in your family or a close friend get shot or dies, see if you feel like that about that person. Put yourself in other people shoes in a situation. You all need to think before you speak and get a life. This was somebody son.
