Benzino Shot During Mother's Funeral Procession

  /  03.29.2014


Benzino was shot Saturday in Duxbury, Mass. while driving in his mother’s funeral procession.

According to WHDH Boston, the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star and former owner of The Source magazine, born Raymond Scott, was shot by his nephew Gai Scott after an argument between family members.

Scott, 36, reportedly drove up in his Bentley alongside Benzino’s Dodge SUV and fired multiple gunshots. Benzino was transported to a nearby hospital with non-fatal wounds and is said to be in stable condition.

“There has been growing family tension between Raymond Scott and Gai Scott,” Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz said in a statement.

Gai Scott was arrested by Plymouth police and charged with assault with intent to murder.

The family proceeded to the funeral. When the hearse arrived, the pastor noticed that it was stained with blood.

“I said to one of the guys: ‘There’s blood on the hearse.’ There was an incident along the way,” said Father William Williams. “The family was there. They were mourning somebody they loved who died so they didn’t want to talk cops and robbers.”

The funeral was for Benzino’s mother, Mary Scott, who died on March 20.

UPDATE: Benzino posted an Instagram photo of himself in the hospital.

“Feel much better, GOD IS REAL @luvheraltheaheart is my SOULMATE……. MY MOTHER TOUCHED ME, IM CERTAIN,” he said.

His fellow “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Stevie J also stopped by to visit him.
