DUXBURY, Mass. (WPRI) – A Boston-based rapper was shot during the funeral procession for a relative of his.
The southbound side of the Route 3 was closed while the investigation was underway. The Duxbury Fire Department said a shooting victim, Raymond Scott, more famously known as Benzino, was dropped off at the police station at around noon, then rushed to South Shore Hospital.
The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office tells Eyewitness News Benzino was allegedly shot by his nephew, Gai Scott, during a family member’s funeral procession. At one point, the cars were driving next to one another.
Gai Scott was arrested and transported to Middleboro State Police Barracks. He’s been charged with armed assault with intent to murder and will be arraigned Monday.
