Erica Mena's Ex-Boyfriend, Cliff Dixon, Killed in Atlanta Club Shooting

It was said that paramedics took him to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he was going into surgery.

Clifford Dixon, 32, was found dead in the parking lot of SL Lounge after having just arrived at the bar. Authorities are unclear if Dixon was the target of the slaying.

As the investigation continues on, it's unknown if Dixon was the intended target in the shooting, while an officer on patrol reported that he saw a black male wearing all black and a skull cap fire at the victim.

According to the Oklahoman, Durant's mother, Wanda Durant, took Dixon into the family's home when he was 16 years old.

As TMZ notes, Dixon had posted a video of himself singing in the auto only hours before the shooting. Rest in forever peace.

Cliff Dixon, a former basketball star and childhood friend of Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant was shot and killed on Wednesday night, moments before he was set to celebrate his 32nd birthday. The two were arrested in October 2018 after someone called police about a fight between them. Durant even referred to Dixon at times as his "adopted brother".

The couple broke up soon after and Mena was engaged to Safaree by Christmas Eve.
