NYC disc jockey shot 13 times dies

(AP) 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.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time," said Josefa Paganuzzi, a Clear Channel spokeswoman.

Police said the investigation into the shooting was ongoing.
