Benzino was shot Saturday afternoon while driving in his mother’s funeral procession and police already arrested a suspect … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
We’re told Benzino — former owner of “The Source” magazine — was shot after an argument erupted between family members in the funeral procession. Benzino was hit and he was rushed to the hospital.
Remarkably … the rest of the family went on with the funeral and the preacher says when they arrived both the limo and the hearse were blood stained — according to reports. And although there were reports stating Benzino was in critical condition, Stevie J took to his Instagram page to let everyone know that Benzino was ok. That picture below along with an update:
According to WCVB … the district attorney says Benzino was shot by his nephew Gai Scott, adding, “There has been growing family tension” between the two.
The D.A. says Benzino and Gai were in different cars … but when the two were side-by-side at some point, his nephew allegedly fired shots.
Gai was charged with assault with intent to murder.
Benzino is currently in stable condition.
