MTV Production Coordinator Shot and Killed ‘Execution-Style’

Gabriel Aron Benmeir, an MTV music and production coordinator who worked on shows like Punk’d and Top Pop Group, was shot in the back of the head and killed last night, execution-style, outside his Mid-Wilshire apartment. Neighbors allegedly heard shots around 1 AM, according to the LA Times, but the police were never called. Benmeir’s body wasn’t found until 6:30 AM. No word yet on whether he died immediately or as a result of massive blood loss.

Obviously more to come on this story. From what we’ve heard thus far, Benmeir’s killing bears an eerie resemblance to the murder of Hollywood publicist Ronnie Chasen late last year.
