Sigel Shot In Attempted Robbery

Beanie Sigel, whose past is shadowed with violence, was wounded by gunfire during an attempted robbery early May 25th.

The rapper was shot one or two times in the upper right arm shortly after 8 a.m., police said. He was hospitalized in good condition.

The holdup was attempted by five males traveling in two cars, according to police. It was not clear where the shooting took place.

Sigel was released from federal prison in August after serving a year on a gun charge and was acquitted of attempted murder the following month.

He was also briefly jailed in November for failure to pay child support.
