Eminem ally and D-12 member PROOF was shot dead in Detroit, Michigan, this morning (11APR06). Proof - real name DESHAUN HOLTON - was declared dead on arrival at the Conner Creek Medical Center in Detroit after being gunned down at an illegal after hours club on the city's infamous Eight Mile Road at 4.30am (EST). D-12 publicist DENNIS DENNEHY confirmed the fatal shooting in a statement, adding, "Memorial service arrangements are still being made, and his friends and family would appreciate privacy during this difficult time." A second man, who is yet to be identified, was also caught up in the shooting spree at CCC club and is currently in a critical condition at the city's St John Hospital after suffering gunshot wounds to the head. A report published on AllHipHop.com speculates he could be fellow D-12 group member BIZARRE. Proof was firm friends with Eminem and served as best man at his second wedding to Kim Mathers in January (06). He also had a bit part in the STAN hitmaker's movie 8 MILE and was signed to Shady Records. The shooting marks the second recent firearm attack on Eminem's entourage - rapper Obie Trice was wounded on New Year's Eve (31JAN05) while driving along the Lodge Freeway in Detroit.

Proof will be missed.Deepest condolences to Holton's family, and to Eminem and the rest of D12.D12 will never be whole again, and quite frankly it wasn't in the first place- as we recall, before D12 got famous, Bugz also died.Rest In Peace."THEY SAY THAT THE GOOD DIE YOUNG... THAT'S WHY I THINK THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE FUN. (When you're young.) TIME WON'T WAIT FOR NO ONE. WHEN GOD CALLS, YOU GOTTA GO HOME." -Good Die Young, D12
