Benny The Butcher shot in Houston Walmart
Benny The Butcher was taken to the hospital for his gunshot.
This last week has been jam-packed with a number of twists and turns — and unnecessary violence. Benny The Butcher, unfortunately, is another victim.
According to TMZ, the Griselda rapper was recently shot in the leg in an attempted robbery at a Walmart in Houston, Texas. “Houston PD tells TMZ … the New York rapper was in town Saturday and visiting a local Walmart with a couple friends in tow,” the news outlet claims. “While they were in their car in the lot, we’re told a car with five guys inside pulled up next to them and whipped out guns … demanding their chains.”
The reports continues that the robbers felt like Benny and his team weren’t moving at a quick enough pace and after growing impatient, one of the assailants shot the MC in the leg. This caused the other robbers to flee, as well as Benny and his team. Once they felt safe, the pulled over and called the cops.
At the time of this article, Benny’s condition is unknown and his robbers have yet to be caught. However, a police investigation already began.
This shooting news is eerily similar to Boosie’s. As many may recall, the Louisiana rapper was also reportedly shot in the leg on Saturday (Nov. 14) — which also happened to be his birthday, as well; in Dallas, Texas. According to reports and eye witnesses, he was sitting in his vehicle in the parking lot of Big T Plaza when a shootout, which he wasn’t a part of, took place.
After Boosie was hit, he was quickly taken to the hospital to treat his gunshot wound. The rapper was reportedly in Dallas to attend fallen rapper Mo3’s funeral, who was signed to Boosie. Earlier this year, the two dropped their full-length project Badazz MO3.
We’re hoping Benny has a speedy recovery.
