Beanie Sigel was reportedly shot inside his New Jersey home on Friday morning and is being treated for life-threatening injuries at an area hospital.
His lawyer confirmed that the rapper who was shot in the stomach is currently in surgery and has been listed in critical condition.
Authorities are on standby to question Siegel whose real name is Dwight Grant about the incident. Another man, who was found injured at the scene, refused medical attention and so far has been reluctant to share any information regarding the shooting.
Sigel was transferred from federal prison to a halfway house this past August after competing his two-year sentence for tax evasion. He was then allowed to return to his residence under monitored surveillance in September.
This isn’t the first time Sigel’s life has been threatened – he was shot in the arm in Philadelphia in 2006.
