Jay Z and Mariah’s Bodyguard Killed in Club Brawl

Updated:

The former bodyguard of Sean Combs, Jay Z and Mariah Carey passed away this weekend after being shot in the neck by New York’s finest. You know how quick they are to pull the trigger especially when they see a BMWG — black man with gun.

From ContactMusic.com:

A former bodyguard for JAY-Z, MARIAH CAREY and SEAN COMBS died in a bar brawl on Sunday (15Nov09) – after he was fatally shot in the neck by New York City police.

Authorities were called to Brooklyn club Norwood Palace early on Sunday morning after gunfire broke out, allegedly over a spilled drink.

According to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, a plainclothes police officer fired at Kevin White, who was reportedly holding a gun inside the club, after he failed to obey to instructions to drop the weapon.
Surveillance video footage reportedly shows the 43-year-old bouncer and celebrity security guard shooting at police prior to the fatal blow.

White had been arrested on five previous occasions for weapon possession, reports the New York Post.
However, his relatives insist White had just wrestled the gun from a patron. White’s sibling, Louis, argues, “My brother would never carry a gun.”

Nineteen-year-old Donovan Wilson was also wounded in the incident after reportedly firing a gun at another club bouncer. He was shot in the elbow and hip after failing to follow police orders to drop his weapon.

    I think it’s just the world that we live in. Ppl are over worked and under paid. Not sure why anyone would not want to obey a officer.

  • missy

    Why did they shoot him in his neck?……couldn’t they go for the leg(i know it is just as lethal but the neck)they didn’t even give him a chance….. *SMT*

  • Shauny

    My condolences to his family. Another young brother gunned down.

    missmiami…that would be the CPD. They have them both faded.

    missy I was thinking the same thing, why are they not aiming for the arm or leg? Seems like they were aiming for the head.

    With the melee going on did he even hear them say drop your weapon?

    Geez. R.I.P. bruh.

  • ReadTheBlog

    Video says he was busting at cops…and they probably shot himin the neck on accident after missing his head. NYPD are not a nice bunch of guys, at all.

    :newbie: What a shame. I lost a good friend a couple of months ago the same way a few months back. He was a bouncer in a night club trying to break up a fight. He was shot in the stomach.

  • msblackitalian

    @# 19…….your talkin bout Brooklyn now…..no more to say!

  • qtipthecat

    I used to live in BK. I’m in Cali no but it isnt so peaceful here either. A 14 yr old boy just molested his 4 year old neighbors little boy, then he killed him by drowning him and then he shoved his little body in his clothes dryer. SMDH! The FBI found him there when he was reported missing.

  • Redeemed777

    If this is what actually happened, and he wasn’t being asked to do something against his moral beliefs, I think he should have just put the weapon down. Black men need to start playing chess and not checkers because emotions won’t get you far, especially when dealing with racist white cops.

    May his soul RIP!!!

    :newbie: Wow, so sad. I hope he didn’t have any children.

    I am so confused by this entire story-bouncer shooting at cops – cops shootin to kill and all this rage for what? He lost his life over a drink and not in his line of business for protecting people and the cops who are paid to protect people took his life instead of protecting it…Bewildered!
    God bless us all!

  • lovinme

    Okay if I read correctly it said he did not listen to the cops when they told him to drop the weapon… Why not? That’s his fault there is no need to act tough if you recovered the gun after a fight drop and tell the cops that ( I know they are iffy sometimes but thats a chance you take and would still be breathing)

    While i feel for his fam I partially blame him….act reckless die reckless….

    So the cops fired cause he didnt listen doing their job, they have families that want them to come Im for sure. Had this guy dropped the gun he be alive……

    None of are cops so can we really speak on what that feels like.

    So for his loss of life yes horrible but people need ot wake up…..
