According to the Plymouth County District Attorney, Benzino, whose real name is Raymond Scott, was shot by his nephew, Gai Scott, as they were headed towards St. Peter's church for the funeral. Benzino, 48, was taken to the hospital with non-fatal injuries, while Scott, 36, was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder.
"There has been growing family tension between Raymond Scott and Gai Scott," the DA 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."
Benzino has appeared on the VH1 reality show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta since 2012 and is the CEO of Hip-Hop Weekly.
