So heartbreaking. DJ Khaled and his fiancée Nicole Tuck are mourning the death of her brother Jonathan Tuck after a senseless tragedy. Jonathan died at just 25 years old on Sunday, Feb. 4 after he was shot in the face during an alleged drug deal gone wrong in a Bronx apartment, according to multiple reports.
Jonathan was attempting to buy marijuana at an apartment less than a mile away from his home, according to the New York Daily News. But cops say at some point during the deal, Jonathan was shot in the face by someone in the apartment and was rushed to the nearby St. Barnabas Hospital, where he died.
Cops are continuing to investigate Jonathan's death, and they believe that Jonathan knew his attacker. They also think that Jonathan and the shooter got into an argument before Jonathan was fatally shot, but it's unclear if the argument was about the drug deal. Brandon Davis, a close friend of Jonathan's, opened up about what kind of person Jonathan was before this tragic incident.
"He's a good guy. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There was no reason for him to be there," Brandon said. "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."
Khaled was in Minneapolis for the Super Bowl at the time of the shooting, and police say Nicole and her mother immediately rushed to the Bronx when they learned about the shooting. Both Khaled and Nicole have yet to release a statement regarding Jonathan's death.
Law enforcement took a 34-year-old man into custody for questioning on Sunday night but as of Monday, no one has been charged with Jonathan's death.
"He was a good man. He leaves a daughter...He was working overnight stock in New Jersey," a family friend revealed. "We're hurting. We're grieving. We're devastated."
