DJ Laz's Gun Connected With Miramar Murder-Suicide
Lazaro Mendez has been a staple on South Florida radio for decades. His classic Mega Mixes and Traffic Jams set the standard for Miami house-party DJs. His work with Pitbull, Gloria Estefan, and 1-800 Need Help TV spots have increased his profile in the past ten years.
Sadly, his gun was reportedly used in a murder-suicide by his friend and associate Marcus Nathaniel Trotman. Before shooting himself, Trotman shot his wife, Danielle Lorenzo, and her mother, Linda Scudera.
In light of this tragedy, we are relieved that Mendez immediately contacted authorities when he heard about the incident. As far as we can read, he's deeply saddened over this tragedy and transparent about his connection with the shooter.
DJ Laz has always been a positive force in our community. He's used his name, high profile, and time to support local charities. Hopefully, this tragic incident will inspire Laz, and other gun owners, to keep closer tabs on their pieces.
