DJ Khaled’s fiancee’s brother killed in weed deal gone bad is a reminder of the human toll of cannabis prohibition.
News of DJ Khaled’s fiancee’s brother hit this week. He was killed in weed deal gone bad. In addition, this reminds us of a pressing reason for cannabis legalization.

A Tragic Weekend
According to New York Daily News, the incident occurred around 9:15 p.m. Sunday night. Reports indicate that 25-year-old Jonathan Tuck was at an apartment in the Bronx. He was there to purchase some weed and at some point, things went some. Tuck was shot in the face. Tuck was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he passed away.
So far, it’s unclear exactly what went wrong. Authorities think there was an argument immediately leading up to the shooting.
“He’s a good guy,” Tuck’s friend Brandon Davis told New York Daily News. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There was no reason for him to be there.”
He added: “I just want to know what this was about. His mother deserves that. His father, his sister, his daughter deserves that. I hope they find the answer.”
Late Sunday night, NYPD took a 34-year-old man into custody and questioned him. But so far no charges have been filed against him.
Tuck’s Connection to DJ Khaled
Sources said that Tuck was close to his sister, Nicole, who is engaged to DJ Khaled. At the time of the shooting, DJ Khaled was in Minneapolis for the Super Bowl. But Nicole, along with her mother were rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital after learning about the shooting.
