Jam Master Jay Suspect Booked

Police say man who shot DJ's nephew might have shot him

By |

New York City police are looking into a connection between the murder of Run-DMC DJ Jam Master Jay (Jason Mizell) last fall and the shooting of his nephew in May.

Twenty-year-old Karl Jordan was arrested August 8th for the attempted murder of Mizell's nephew Rodney Jones, a rapper who uses the name Boe Skagz. According to Police Comissioner Raymond Kelly, a source has suggested the two shootings were done by the same person -- though Kelly said that tip may not be credible.

The source, a convicted criminal named Ronald Tinard Washington, is also a suspect in Mizell's death. The pioneering DJ was shot to death in his Queens recording studio last October 30th.
