via NBC Philadelphia:
Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel has been shot after an apparent fight outside a Jersey Shore home, police tell NBC10.
The shooting happened around 9:45 a.m. along the 800 block of Spruce Avenue in Pleasantville, New Jersey, police said.
Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was hit in the stomach, police said. He was taken to a hospital and is currently in surgery.
A man was taken into custody after police chased a car that appeared to be related to the shooting.
Back in August, Beanie was released to a Philadelphia halfway house after serving a two-year sentence in federal prison for tax evasion. He has been on home confinement since September 25th.
How he ended up in New Jersey with an ankle monitor is beyond us.
UPDATE: Judging from the photo above that was posted just a little while ago from the hospital bed, Beanie’s going to be just fine.
