Michael Onley, the popular Wilkes-Barre disc jockey who rallied for justice after unrelated instances of gun violence claimed the lives of his younger brother and the teenager Trayvon Martin within weeks in 2012, was shot and killed early Sunday in a lot behind a Wilkes-Barre bar, authorities said.

The shooting happened around 12:15 a.m., police said, near the Outsiders Bar at 650 S. Main St. where Onley regularly worked under his professional name, “DJ Mo.” Paramedics transported Onley to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, where he eventually succumbed to his injuries.

Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis confirmed Onley’s death. It was the ninth fatal shooting in the city this year and the third in the last month.
