    D-12 member Proof was shot and killed in Detroit, Michigan this morning (April 11) at an after hours club on Eight Mile Road.

    Proof, born Deshaun Hotlon, was murdered at the Triple C club around 4:30 am and another man was seriously wounded, both with gunshots to the head.

    "We cannot give out names, or any specifics because of the investigation," Sgt. Omar Feliciano told "We are following our leads. But, one male [Proof], 32, was taken to Holy Cross hospital with a gun shot to the head. Another male, 35, was taken to Sain private transporation and he is in critical condition."

    Interscope represenatives also confirmed Bizarre was not involved in the incident.

    "Contrary to earlier rumors and reports, D-12 member Bizarre was not involved in the incident in Detroit last night," Interscope said. "He was at home in Atlanta, Georgia."

    Earlier reports stated that Bizarre had been shot or that police were seeking to question him, after an altercation took place in the club.

    One witness was being questioned by the police, who are still seeking suspects.

    Proof was signed to superstar rapper Eminem's Shady Records as a member of the platinum selling group, D-12.

    The group, which features members Eminem, Kon Artis, Proof, Swift , Bizarre and Kuniva, released their debut album Devil's Night in 2001. The group followed with D12 World in 2004, which produced the hit single "My Band."

    Proof followed with a solo album titled Searching for Jerry Garcia in 2005, released on his own label, Iron Fist Recordings.

    Proof was an influential figure on the Detroit rap scene, hosting legendary battles at the Hip Hop Shop.

    In the movie 8 Mile, Mekhi Phifer was chosen to embody Proof as the character "Future," while Proof starred in the movie as "Lil Tic."
