Bronx, NY – Four men have been arrested in connection to the murder of DJ Khaled’s brother-in-law Jonathan Tuck.
According to the United States Department of Justice website, Luis Semiday, Richard Jimenez, Kevin Cruz, Ira Lawson and Curtis Hines have been indicted on charges of robbery conspiracy, robbery and murder through the use of a firearm.
Tuck, the younger brother of Khaled’s wife Nicole Tuck, was killed in the Bronx last February. He was reportedly trying to purchase marijuana when he was shot in the face.
“As alleged in the Indictment, the defendants planned and carried out the violent armed robbery of a marijuana dealer in the Bronx,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said. “In the course of that robbery, 25-year-old Jonathan Tuck was killed.
“Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of the NYPD and the Special Agents of our Office, five defendants now face charges for their role in these terrible crimes.”
NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neil added, “We have zero tolerance for crime and violence of any kind in our city, and New Yorkers in every neighborhood deserve to feel safe on our streets. Today, these five men are correctly being held accountable for their actions – which include, tragically, ending another man’s life.”
Jimenez, Cruz, Lawson and Hines were arrested on Monday (October 29). Semiday remains at large.
