Clifford Dixon, the ex of Love & Hip Hop star Erica Mena and a close friend of National Basketball Association star Kevin Durant, was shot and killed just after 1am Thursday outside an Atlanta nightclub where he had gone to celebrate his 32nd birthday. We been cool since like 16-17 years old U was just in my session in Atlanta listening to my album this shit super wacc!

He was initially taken to the hospital in critical condition, but later died.

Fox Atlanta reports that the shooting took place in the parking lot of the Little Saigon strip mall in Chamblee, Georgia, 15 miles north of Atlanta around 1 a.m.

An officer nearby says he was in his patrol unit outside the club when he saw a black male wearing all black with a black skull cap fire at the victim, according to an incident report obtained by TMZ. But police did not find any visible marks on either person, only arresting Dixon for criminal trespassing after it was reported he'd kicked through the door. The incident is under investigation, and it is unclear if Dixon was targeted.

Dixon was celebrating his 32nd birthday at S.L. Lounge nightclub, per BET.

"You keep me every day. Ah ni**a made it another year", he wrote under the photo. We send our condolences to the family and Dixon's friends. The athletes have not yet responded to the news of his death.

In November, Mena announced that she was dating one of her Love & Hip Hop cast mates, Safaree Samuels.
