Over the weekend, star of Love & Hip Hop ATL, rapper, & magazine publisher Benzino was shot multiple times while attending his mother's funeral!

Benzino was targeted during the procession of his mother's funeral, police say.

“The incident was between two vehicles whose occupants knew each other. The driver of a Bentley shot the driver of a red Dodge SUV, who exited his car and was taken to the Duxbury police station by a passerby. The injured red Dodge SUV driver, who officials say was in his 40s, was then transported by ambulance to the hospital.The Bentley driver has been arrested and will be arraigned Monday on a charge of armed assault with intent to murder.”

WOW. This violence is really cray cray. Now Benzino has made alot of enemies over the course of his career, esp dating back to his Source Magazine days, but intent to murder? REALLY?!

Benzino is in stable condition in ICU being visited by his Love & Hip Hop costars & friends like Stevie J. No official confirmation as of yet if the Love & Hip Hop cameras were filming during the violent attack on Benzino's life. Rumors are swirling that his own nephew may've been the trigger man. No word yet what the motive may've been.

HOT 99.1 will keep you posted on this story as it develops.
