Yesterday we reported the Benzino was in stable condition after being shot during his mother’s funeral. We now know that he has since been released from the hospital and has spoken out about the shooting. The rapper said, “I looked over, there was a car, and all I saw was a gun shooting at me.”
It turns out that Gai Scott, Benzino’s nephew, was the shooter and is now claiming self defense. Scott plans on entering a not-guilty plea on the armed assault with intent to murder charge. His lawyer fired back at Benzino saying, “When the dust settles, this case will be shown to be self-defense.” The lawyer also added, “I would suggest that he [the uncle] has an agenda utilizing and self-promoting at this time.”
