Legendary DJ Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC was shot in the head and killed in a studio in Queens, New York. According to sources, Jay was shot and killed when men entered the studio he was in and shot him.
Police said that 37-year-old Jay (A.K.A. Jason Mizell) was shot and killed inside of a studio on Merrick Boulevard around 7:30 PM. A second victim was shot and killed in the leg, but that person has not been identified.
He was working on bringing out new groups and working with the Scratch Academy. This is so sad.
