It has been confirmed that “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Benzino was shot by his nephew Gai Scott, 36, during his mother’s funeral procession. Scott was arrested by Plymouth police and charged with assault with intent to murder.
“There has been growing family tension between Raymond Scott and Gai Scott,” Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz said in a statement. ”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.”
There has been no update on Benzino’s condition. He was rushed to South Shore Hospital with non-fatal injuries and listed in critical condition.
