DJ Laz's Gun Used in Miramar Murder-Suicide

Power 96 morning host and Miami bass legend DJ Laz finds himself connected to a bizarre murder-suicide that occurred in Miramar this past weekend.

Marcus Trotman, 25, shot his wife, 30-year-old Danielle Lorenzo, and his mother-in-law, Linda Scudera, before turning the gun on himself. All three died. According to Local 10's sources, the gun belonged to DJ Laz, AKA Lazaro Mendez. Trotman had been staying with Laz before the incident.

Trotman had been working for Laz as an audio engineer and had been staying at his Plantation home while dealing with mental issues. Trotman was also facing domestic violence charges at for allegedly choking and beating his wife. Lorenzo was so badly injured during the August attack she needed 15 stitches in her head.

The gun used in the Sunday murder-suicide was Laz's semiautomatic small-caliber pistol. According to Bob Norman, the DJ contacted police after hearing about the incident and discovering that one of his guns had gone missing.

Laz is said to be grieving, and no wrongdoing is suspected on his part.

my fiance was just telling me about this story and he sounded familiar! what a small,small world...i chilled with this dude about 6-7yrs ago, but i only knew him as "Weizy" and DJ Laz's assistant. we chilled once @ the park by Dj Laz's crib and after that he got all creepy messaging me and bugging me through myspace to chill constantly so i kinda just blew him off...GLAD I DID! sheesh...

Another big win for gun rights!  Underlining message:  "Don't take away my hand gun rights, Obama!  It's my right as an AMERICAN, to have them in my home!...  even though their much more likely to harm the innocent than actually protect against criminals."

I wonder how many criminals or bad guys this gun was ever used to shoot...

Really guy?  A knife?  Do you know what happens to those who bring knives to gun fights?  That phrase exsists because a knife can not do the same job.That was posted soley to encourage people to question the efficitivity of hand gun policies in the US.

Yes he probably could have used a knife, & maybe the knife could do the same thing (except not as quick & not as clean) however in this case it wasn't a knife it was in fact a GUN..."DJ Laz's semiautomatic small-calibar pistol" as the article leads me to believe.

Never leave your gun unattended! Especially if you know someone with mental issues is living there!

A good lesson, always distance yourself from crazy people! 

On a related note, Govt needs to protect us from them, way too many crazy homeless people in the streets.  Republicans going to take care of them?

instead of having someone protect us from "crazy homeless people" we may want to actually try & develop programs to HELP the mentaly ill, jerk.
