Just found out that the guy that played Romeo on the show was shot and killed Saturday. His real name is Merlin Santana. He was only 26 years old. My Prayers go out to him and his family.:(

wasn't he on "The Cosby Show" when he was a kid? I think I remember him as Rudy's boyfriend that Bud was jealous of.
Very sad. RIP. :(

LOS ANGELES –– Merlin Santana, a television and film actor who appeared in this year's Eddie Murphy movie "Showtime," was shot to death while sitting in a parked car, authorities said Sunday.
Santana, 26, was killed early Saturday in South Los Angeles, police spokeswoman Lucy Diaz said.
He was sitting in the passenger seat shortly after 2:30 a.m. when at least one person approached the car and fired, Lt. Clay Farrell said.
The driver escaped injury, drove off and flagged down police. Paramedics responded but Santana was pronounced dead at the scene, Farrell said.
No arrests were immediately made and investigators had not determined a motive for the attack.
The New York-born Santana had a recurring role on "The Steve Harvey Show," playing Romeo Santana. The role won him nominations for NAACP Image Awards and ALMA Awards, which honor Hispanic performers.
One of his earliest roles was as Stanley, the faithful admirer of Rudy Huxtable on the hit series "The Cosby Show."
He also had guest appearances on several television shows, including "Major Dad," "Moesha" and "Sister, Sister."
He later joined the casts of "Getting By" and the short-lived James Earl Jones drama "Under One Roof."

I haven't been able to find the link but I read in an article yesterday that said they have arrested a woman, and charged her with the shooting.
