Update #2

Investigators on the scene said Slim was shooting a music video at the studio when he got into an altercation:

“Now it’s my understanding prior to the video shoot, Mr. Hamilton became involved in a verbal altercation with another individual who we believe produced a handgun, discharged that weapon at least one time, striking Mr. Hamilton in the chest.”

Police are still trying to figure out why the altercation started, and who the gunman is.

Def Sounds send its condolences to Slim’s family and friends…
