Benny The Butcher Shot: Authorities stated Sunday that New York rapper Benny the Butcher was wounded during a robbery attempt outside of a business in Houston.

According to Houston Police spokesperson Jodi Silva, the 35-year-old entertainer, whose actual name is Jeremie Pennick, was shot in the leg in the parking lot of a Walmart on the city’s southwest side around 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

Pennick and two other people with him were accosted by five people wearing masks as they walked out of their Rolls Royce, she added, demanding their chains.

According to Silva, the trio began removing their jewels, but they were not moving quickly enough for one of the suspects, who then shot the rapper.

Pennick was brought to the hospital after the perpetrators fled the scene, according to her. He’s in good health and is likely to live. Those who were with him at the time of the incident were unharmed.

The suspects are still on the loose, according to Silva, and an investigation is underway. According to investigators, the suspects’ identities were not immediately revealed, but they were seen in a Chevy Malibu.

Pennick’s representatives did not respond to a request for comment.

The rapper from Buffalo, New York, is a member of the hip-hop duo Griselda, and his second studio album, “Burden of Proof,” was published last month. Spotify has also recently inked a management deal with Roc Nation, the entertainment agency founded by celebrity rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z.

In less than a week, Pennick is at least the third rapper to be killed by gunfire in Texas.

Another hip-hop musician, Boosie Badazz, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, was shot in the leg just hours before the incident involving Pennick. Hatch had just attended a vigil for dead Dallas rapper Mo3, who was shot and killed on a roadway in his hometown last Wednesday during a daytime attack. In a Facebook post on Sunday, the 38-year-old Baton Rouge native assured his supporters that he was fine.

No arrests have been made in any case, according to police. According to WFAA-TV, investigators have stated no proof linking Saturday’s shooting to Noble’s death.
