A memorial service is being held Thursday in Miami for a well known chef who was gunned down inside a South Beach nightclub.
The service for Antaun Teasley will take place at 1 p.m. at Bethel Apostolic Temple at 1855 Northwest 119th Street.
Teasley, the personal chef for Miami Heat player Norris Cole, was shot and killed inside popular Mansion nightclub early Tuesday.
Miami Beach Police said Teasley, 42, had been in the VIP section of the club when he was involved in a physical altercation. He ended up with a gunshot wound to his upper torso, police said.
Paramedics rushed him to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he later died. No one else was hurt in the shooting and police are still looking for the killer.
Teasley studied at Pennsylvania Culinary Institute in Pittsburgh, then began working in Florida around 2000, according to his biography. He was a Cleveland native and worked with a number of pro athletes with Ohio ties – including Cole, who is a native of Dayton and played his college ball at Cleveland State before being drafted by the Heat in 2011.
Teasley's funeral will be held in Cleveland on June 21.
