  • Proofs Shooter Turns Himself In

    Mario Etheridge, a 28-year-old bouncer at Detroit's CCC Club, where the shooting occurred, is now in custody, according to the Detroit Police

    Authorities have not released any more details but said Tuesday that several witnesses had pointed to Etheridge and that once police started to make contact, he turned himself in. A warrant is currently being filed for his arrest.

            Bastard. He's lucky he turned himself in, he's safe in jail. If people knew he did it, he would be dead right now.

                He'll probably get killed anyway, there's a LOT of Proof fans out there waiting to take off his head.

                          seriously why the hell would u shoot someone twice in the head and then twice in the chest if u didn't mean to kill them?
                          that's just retarded. this guy obviously wanted proof dead, or at least didn't make a good enough decision. this guy should get a harsh punishment, not just some 1 year deal for turning himself in.
                          Blow me...

                              wat on earth was the guy thinking? even if proof did shoot first he had no right to shoot that many times and then to hand himself trying to take the easy way out! well i hope he gets locked away for good cos im sure tehre are plenty of proof fans in there that are willing hand out their own punishment for him
