Two men in Detroit

have been charged with the murder of the man who drove rapper Proof to the hospital

after he was shot in the CCC club during an altercation with a bouncer at the

venue.

Police charged

John Henry Williams II, 31 and Corey Frazier, 29 on charges of first-degree

murder and possession of a firearm during a felony. According to the Detroit

Free Press, Gerald Rosic Gadie was with Proof on April 11 when the rapper shot

and killed Keith Bender Jr., 35, during a dispute.

Bender’s cousin

Mario Etheridge, 28, then shot Proof, born Deshaun Holton, in what authorities

later determined was done out of self-defense.

Gadie’s body was

found in the basement of his home on May 27. Police claim he was shot to death

in a dispute over 20 pounds of marijuana and $7,000 in cash that had been stolen

from Gadie in early May.

Gadie drove Proof

to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

If convicted, both

men face mandatory life sentences. A preliminary examination is scheduled for

June 30.
