DJ Nando, AKA DJ Fernando, was shot and killed in Atlanta on Tuesday morning. He was very popular in the hip hop scene and often gave up-and-coming artists a break by playing their music during his set.
According to reports, Nando was shot outside of his home in Atlanta and it’s possible that the person or persons responsible followed him all the way home, effectively biding their time before killing him.
Celebs were saddened by the news of Nando’s death and some tweeted about it including Jermaine Dupri, Young Dro, and Rico Love.
“Rest In Peace @djnando404 . I pray that your soul was right with the LORD. Shocked. #TTLO,” Rico wrote.
It’s sad that another innocent life was lost to gun violence. It’s possible that the person responsible was jealous of DJ Nando or maybe they didn’t get airplay in one of his sets. Who knows what the motive for the killing was, all that’s clear at the moment is that it happened and it shattered the lives of many.
