Michael Morgan Jr., the cousin of TNA star Matt Morgan, was shot and killed on Monday morning in New Jersey.
Michael Morgan, a 32-year old police detective, was killed outside a nightclub as he was walking a dancer to her car. Morgan and the dancer were held up at gunpoint. The attack, which happened just after 3 a.m., ended with Morgan suffering a fatal gunshot wound to the torso.
Matt Morgan acknowledged the death on his Twitter page on Tuesday.
â€œMike Morgan was a highly decorated cop, who was in (the) anti-gang division and Monday was to start SVU. Still canâ€™t believe he got killed. Too young with HUGE career in front of him still.â€
â€œNews said heâ€™d gotten out of over 600 â€˜guns drawn situations over his career in anti-gang without having to draw his own. Thatâ€™s insanely impressive.â€
According to New Jerseyâ€™s NJ.com, police are offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the shooter.
As if this news isnâ€™t bad enough, Matt Morgan also tweeted that his father is hospitalized because his brain cancer is â€œspreading rapidly.â€
We wish our sincere condolences to the Morgan family during this very difficult time.
