MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Police say a private chef employed by Miami Heat guard Norris Cole was shot and killed inside a popular South Beach nightclub.
Police say 42-year-old Antaun Teasley was found unresponsive early Tuesday inside Club Mansion. Police say he had been in a fight with a man in the VIP area shortly before he was found.
He was taken to a Miami hospital, where he died.
Teasley's death was announced hours before Cole and the Miami Heat would play Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs. On Twitter, Heat guard Mario Chalmers called the news ''crazy.''
The last tweet posted to Teasley's account was a photo of a meal apparently prepared for Cole on Monday afternoon - a sweet potato frittata, summer salad with raspberry vinaigrette, turkey sausage and a beet juice.
