(Gossip-Grind News) Rapper Beanie Sigel Shot Outside Of His New Jersey Home:

Philadelphia-born rapper Beanie Sigel, 40, was rushed to the hospital this morning (Dec. 5) after being shot outside of his Pleasentville, NJ home. Sigel, real name Dwight Grant, was in surgery and listed in critical condition, according to his attorney Fortunato Perri Jr.

“All I can confirm at this time is that Mr. Dwight Grant was shot this morning after an altercation on Spruce Avenue,” Pleasntville police Chief Jose Ruiz said, adding that his condition is “serious.” Ruiz said that investigators were waiting to talk to Sigel.


The shooting happened around 9:20 a.m. Friday outside Sigel’s home along the 800 block of Spruce Avenue in Pleasantville, New Jersey, police said.
Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was hit in the back, his attorney Fortunato Perri, Jr. told NBC10. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and is currently in surgery. Police originally believed Sigel was shot in the stomach.
“The whole thing is a tragedy,” a cousin of Sigel’s wife said. She refused to give her name. “It’s just very sad and I just ask that everybody keep our family in prayer and that he pulls through.” Another victim, a man, was injured in the altercation, but was not shot, police said. He is being questioned by detectives.
Perri, Jr. said Sigel had just returned home from dropping his kids off at school when he came upon the fight near his house. The attorney said it appears Sigel was an unintended victim. (NBC Philadelphia)
