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.
