Most people have heard the story behind the horrific shooting that led to the untimely death of Marvin Gaye. On April 1, 1984, the “Sexual Healing” singer was shot twice by his father, Marvin Sr., after he attempted to intervene during an argument between his parents. The shooting took place at his parents’ home in the West Adams district of Los Angeles, CA.

Marvin Gaye Jr.’s mother, Alberta, recounted the horrific final moments of her son’s life during an interview with local police:

“I was standing about eight feet away from Marvin, when my husband came to the door of the bedroom with his pistol,” she said. “My husband didn’t say anything, he just pointed the gun at Marvin. I screamed but it was very quick. He, my husband, shot – and Marvin screamed. I tried to run. Marvin slid down to the floor after the first shot.”
