It seems award winning producer, Metro Boomin, may have a bigger heart than beats. Metro Boomin secretly paid off the mortgage for the family of the retired security guard who died in the Buffalo supermarket shooting.
The fallen hero's son, Aaron Salter, took to Instagram to share the news writing:
How many producers you know look out for people when they need it most? Gotta say thanks to my favorite producer @metroboomin he called me and asked if he could help me during my tragic loss and did just that! No more mortgage Paid in full!!! Thanks @metroboomin ill never forget what you did!
Metro Boomin responded on the post writing: “Love always bro! My line is always open and I meant every single thing I said back when we spoke.”
Aaron Salter Jr. and nine other people were slain on May 14 in Buffalo Supermarket mass shooting. Aaron Salter Jr. was a retired police officer, but was on duty working security for the supermarket. He was shot and killed after he challenged the shooter there.
At the time of the murder, Buffalo mayor Byron Brown told CNN, “The security guard that was killed did shoot and hit the suspect but it did not penetrate the body armor. Former Buffalo Police Lieutenant Aaron Salter died a hero trying to stop the shooter and protect others in the community.”
His son, Aaron Salter posted to Instagram at the time writing:
