Beanie, whose real name is Dwight Grant, and another man were found injured Friday morning, the Associated Press claims. While Beanie was sent to the hospital, the other man allegedly refused medical treatment and was uncooperative with police.
“Apparently, there was a struggle of some type, which led to Mr. Grant being shot and that is all we have at this point,” Pleasantville police Chief Jose Ruiz told The Associated Press.
Beanie’s lawyer claims the rapper had just dropped his kids off at school and he was not an intended target. No other details have been released at this time.
We’re just happy to hear he’s awake, and so are his fans!
