A former associate producer of the Discovery Channel’s reality show, Deadliest Catch, was shot and killed in front of his Pasadena, California, home early Friday morning.
Joe McMahon was pronounced dead at the scene. He was 25.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 2:19 a.m. call reporting possible shots fired in the neighborhood of Chapman Woods. Upon arriving, they found McMahon in the street suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
CBS2 reported early Friday evening that the suspect in McMahon's murder, a 24-year-old man, was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in his vehicle at around 4 p.m. in West L.A. The suspect's identity has not been released, pending notification of the next of kin.
McMahon worked on nine episodes of the Deadliest Catch in 2013 as part of the production team Original Productions, according to IMDB.
ABC7 reports that an unrelated deputy-involved shooting occurred on the same suburban street last week. McMahon's home was just two blocks away from both an elementary and middle school.
