    D-12 member Proof was shot and killed in Detroit, Michigan this morning (April 11) at an after hours club on Eight Mile Road.

    Proof, born Deshaun Hotlon, was murdered at the Triple C club around 4:30 am and another man was seriously wounded, both with gunshots to the head.

    "We cannot give out names, or any specifics because of the investigation," Sgt. Omar Feliciano told AllHipHop.com. "We are following our leads. But, one male [Proof], 32, was taken to Holy Cross hospital with a gun shot to the head. Another male, 35, was taken to Saint John's in private transporation and he is in critical condition."

    Sources told AllHipHop.com that the second man shot may have been fellow D-12 group member Bizarre, but police have not released the victims identity as of press time.

    One witness was being questioned by the police, who are still seeking suspects.

    The rapper was signed to superstar rapper Eminem's Shady Records as a member of the platinum selling group, D-12.

    The group, which features members Eminem, Kon Artis, Proof, Swift , Bizarre and Kuniva, released their debut album Devil's Night in 2001. The group followed with D12 World in 2004, which produced the hit single "My Band."

    Proof followed with a solo album titled Searching for Jerry Garcia in 2005, released on his own label, Iron Fist Recordings.

    Proof was an influential figure on the Detroit rap scene, hosting legendary battles at the Hip Hop Shop.

    In the movie 8 Mile, Mekhi Phifer was chosen to embody Proof as the character "Lil Tic."

    RIP. But, I suppose, when you are rappin' about killings and violence etc.. you inevitably become a target for rival gangs.
