    NY - Radio DJ Carl Blaze, 30, Inwood, NYC, 7 Dec 2006


    NEW YORK A popular hip-hop disc jockey died Saturday after being shot at least 13 times earlier this month, police said.

    Carl Blaze, born Carlos Rivera, was shot outside an apartment building near Manhattan's Inwood section on Dec. 7, and his $20,000 diamond chain was stolen, police said. He was taken to Harlem Hospital Center, where he died Saturday.

    Blaze, 30, was a DJ for hip-hop and R&B radio station Power 105.1 FM for about three years. He had gained a large fan base by spinning records at clubs and on the air on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Power 105.1 FM was holding a tribute for Blaze on Saturday night. The station is owned by Clear Channel Communications.

    From May 2010:


    Zarnoff Taylor, 23, who is accused of shooting two men — one fatally — and dumping their bodies on a Bronx street, surfaced as a suspected shooter in the slaying of DJ Blaze after being nabbed in a recent roundup of violent drug-gang members and motorcycle thieves in Washington Heights.

    Taylor is allegedly part of a gang known for operating along a 10-block stretch of Vermilyea Avenue in Manhattan’s Inwood section — the same area where Blaze was killed on Dec. 7, 2006.
    Taylor was convicted and sentenced to LWOP in the Bronx case:


    But I cannot find were anyone has been prosecuted for Carl Blaze's murder.
