Michael Phillips was shot and killed Monday afternoon, police told FOX 5. The unidentified gunman is at large.
The 27-year-old newlywed was at home with his wife when neighbors reported hearing arguing followed by gunshots coming from the house. The couple was expecting their first child, family said.
Phillips once worked as a bodyguard, providing protection for Billboard 200 artist Future.
“Rest in Paradise Big Mike,” Future tweeted Tuesday with a praying hands emoji. “Lafamilia forever lil bro.”
After giving up the guard gig, he worked as a pianist at his mom’s church, Hand of Faith Deliverance. Church members visited Phillips’ home Monday afternoon to mourn the slain musician.
Police have not made any arrests or identified any possible suspects.
