Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Benzino (also known as Raymond Scott) was shot today in Boston while riding in his mother’s funeral procession. HipHopHollywood reports that Benzino’s car was shot at by another vehicle while he was on his way to the funeral service and he was taken to the Duxbury, MA police station and later to South Shore Hospital where he remains in stable condition.
The Boston Globe also reports:
“The shooting occurred after an argument between family members, but investigators are now working to determine what sparked the violence. In his statement, Cruz said that a person driving a Bentley shot the driver of a red Dodge SUV, who got out of his car and was taken to the Duxbury Police Department by a passerby, before being taken to the hospital.”
The shooter, who is thought to be a relative, was apprehended and charged with armed assault with intent to murder. We’ll keep fans updated with more news as it comes and we wish Zino the best, and a very speedy recovery.
