Love and Hip Hop star Benzino was shot by his nephew during his mother’s funeral procession in Massachusetts on Saturday.
The 48-year old rapper/former The Source owner – real name Raymond Scott – got shot by his nephew Gai Scott after an argument erupted among family members during the procession. According to law enforcement sources, Benzino and Gai were not in the same car … but when the two came to be side-by-side at one point, the latter fired several shots into the rapper’s car.
‘There has been growing family tension between Raymond Scott and Gai Scott,’ Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz said in a statement, according to WCVB. ‘At some point when the cars were side by side, Gai Scott fired several shots into the red Dodge SUV being driven by Raymond Scott.’
Benzino then got out of the car and was rushed to the hospital, where he is currently in stable condition.
And as for Gai, he has been charged with assault with intent to murder.
Incredibly, mourners did not realize what happened until they saw the blood-stained limo and hearse.
