Michael Tanner Phillips, a former bodyguard for Future, has been shot and killed at his home in Jonesboro, Georgia.

Phillips, who was 27 years old, was recently married and his wife is expecting their first child, according to a report by Fox 5 Atlanta.

Lt. Frank Thomas of the Clayton County Police Department said Phillips’ wife was at home with him when the shooting occurred, but wasn’t in the same room. Thomas said: “Some of the neighbors heard some arguing and some gunshots. We are still interviewing some of them and trying to just piece together everything at this time.”

No arrests have been made and the gunman remains at large, he said.

A spokesman for Future told Fader that Phillips worked for the rapper until 2011.
