DJ Carl Blaze, a popular New York DJ, has died from wounds sustained after being shot multiple times earlier this month.
Blaze, who played nights on New York’s Power 105.1, was shot 13 times on December 7 and was expected to live if he could survive the initial days following the attack.
Déjà Vu, an on air personality for Power 105, told AllHipHop.com her thoughts on the shooting in a previous interview.
“It hit hard for me personally, because I was on the air when I heard the news. When I delivered the info to my audience, I had a semi-breakdown on the mic,” she said. “The frailty of life was heightened in my mind. It was as if someone had punched me in the stomach. Life is too short for senseless violence.”
At press time, no official motive has been announced, but police seek to talk to a woman that may have played a roll in Blaze’s death.
Carl Blaze was dedicated to his craft for over 12 years and spun a wide range of music, playing in both radio and clubs.
