LH&H Benzino Shot By His Nephew During Mother’s Funeral
Raymond “Benzino” Scott a cast member of the popular reality show, Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, and former owner of The Source magazine, has been shot multiple times just south of Boston, MA while on his way to his mom’s funeral, by his nephew, Gai Scott. Talk about a dysfunctional family? On the day of Gai’s grandmother’s funeral, he decides to try and kill his Uncle Benzino, while he and his uncle are traveling to the church for the funeral. How can you hate a family member so much that you use a funeral as the most opportune time to try and commit murder…in broad day light with several witnesses?
Needless to say his nephew, Gai Scott has been arrested and is facing assault charges with intent to murder. So he will be going to jail for a long time because “tensions” between him and his uncle have been escalating. Other than “escalating tensions”, there is no clear motive as to why their feud has lead to this moment. Luckily Benzino is in stable condition and recovering well from the wounds. The bullets pierced his arms and grazed his back. Check out the details according to MTV:
Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz issued a statement that confirmed that there has been “growing family tension” between Benzino and his nephew, who fired multiple shots into the rapper’s SUV shortly before noon yesterday. Both men, were headed to the funeral. “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,” the statement read.
Gai Scott was arrested and charged with armed assault with intent to murder.
