Beanie Sigel Awake After Shooting & Surgery; Rapper Released From Hospital
After being shot in the abdomen near his home in New Jersey on Friday (December 5), Beanie Sigel was reportedly awake the same afternoon after leaving surgery. The latest news, which was delivered to The Associated Press by Pleasantville police Chief Jose Ruiz, comes after initial reports that the rapper’s wounds were life-threatening.
According to Billboard, Sigel and another man were both injured outside the State Property emcee’s home on the morning of December 5. Sigel was brought to the hospital for his injuries while the other man declined treatment and refused to cooperate.
Chief Jose Ruiz hinted that there might be “some type of family relationship” between Sigel and the other man.
“Apparently, there was a struggle of some type, which led to Mr. Grant being shot and that is all we have at this point,” he added.
The altercation apparently took place shortly after Sigel took his children to school according to the rapper’s lawyer Fortunato Perri Jr.
As previously reported by a FlamesRadio Source, Sigel was released from prison in August after a two-year bid in prison and spent time in a Philadelphia halfway house following the release.
