Beanie Sigel Shot in Philadelphia
Rapper Beanie Sigel was shot on a Philadelphia street early this morning in what appears to have been a robbery attempt gone wrong. According to an initial report from channel 6 ABC in Philadelphia, five men in two cars boxed Beans in and a suspect described as a black male in his 30s opened fire, hitting the rapper twice in the upper arm. Although seriously wounded, Sigel managed to drive himself to a local hospital and is currently being treated for his injuries. He is expected to make a full recovery. The incident caps off what has been a tumultuous 12 months for Beanie, during which the Philly native’s stepfather was found brutally murdered, and the rapper was released from federal prison only to be briefly re-incarcerated on charges that he neglected to pay child support.
