DJ Megatron Shot, Killed in Staten Island

Radio and TV personality DJ Megatron was killed early Sunday morning (March 27), after an unidentified gunman shot him on the streets of Staten Island, N.Y.

Megatron, born Corey McGriff, was gunned down in the Clifton area of Staten Island. He was pronounced dead on the scene a short time after 2AM, according to the New York Daily News.

McGriff — a former jock on WQHT Hot 97 in New York City and a mixer who made his mark on BET’s ‘106 & Park’ — was not known to have enemies. His death comes as a shock to those who were his friends. “Everybody is shocked,” revealed a close friend who asked not be identified. “He just had a new baby. He wasn’t feuding with anybody. Everybody liked him.”

Police did not immediately confirm McGriff’s identity. Currently, no eyewitnesses to the murder have come forward or been located, says a police source.

McGriff is survived by three children and leaves a wife behind.
