    Family, Friends, Fans Pay Their Respects

    POSTED: 12:14 pm EDT April 19, 2006

    DETROIT -- Family, friends and fans gathered Wednesday for a funeral service for rapper Proof, while Detroit police investigated a bomb threat at the church.

    A called-in bomb threat was made, according to Detroit police. Police K-9 units were brought to the Fellowship Chapel on West Outer Drive and searched cars parked near the front entrance, Local 4 reported. Nothing had been found as of Local 4's noon report.

    Proof, whose real name is DeShaun Holton, was shot and killed at a Detroit after-hours club on April 11. While police said the rapper may have fired the first shot at the C.C.C. club, friends and fans remember him as a friend who made a mark on hip-hop music, Local 4 reported.

    "In the hip-hop community he was a positive influence," said fan Faustine Onwuneme. "I am just glad to see that he made a positive impact in the community."

    Proof was a friend of Detroit-area rap star Eminem and a founding member of the group D-12. He will be buried at Woodlawn Cemetery in a gold coffin, which is engraved with his given name and rap moniker, Local 4 reported.

    Witnesses said Proof shot former U.S. Army Sgt. Keith Bender over an argument following a game of pool at the club on Eight Mile Road, Local 4 reported. Bender died after spending about a week on life support, according to the station's reports.

    Mario Etheridge, 28, of Detroit, is accused of shooting Proof, according to Local 4 reports. Etheridge pleaded not guilty to charges of carrying a concealed weapon and discharge of a firearm in a building.

    Etheridge was working as a bouncer at the C.C.C. club the evening of the shooting, Local 4 reported. Witnesses say Etheridge fired shots after Proof shot Bender. Etheridge and Bender are related.

    The attorney representing Etheridge stated his client fired shots in self-defense.
