Two men have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of Corey McGriff, better known as television and radio personality DJ Megatron.

According to TMZ (via Pop Eater): The suspects, 20-year-old Richard Cromwell and 21-year-old William Williams, were taken into custody this morning.

McGriff, 32, was gunned down in Staten Island, NY, early in the morning of March 27 just a block from his home. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police told the New York Daily News that they believe the two men stalked McGriff for a block before shooting and killing him in a robbery that went tragically wrong. They reportedly confessed to the crime — Williams allegedly fired the fatal shot and Cromwell snatched McGriff’s watch, a gift from his 11-year-old daughter, from his body before they both fled. They were identified by witnesses and surveillance footage from the scene.
