Rapper and “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Benzino was shot en route to his mom’s funeral in Massachusetts on Saturday by his own nephew Gai Scott, according to law enforcement officials.

Benzino was taken to a local hospital with non-fatal injuries.

According to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office, “There has been growing family tension between Raymond Scott and Gai Scott.”

At one point, as family members were heading to St. Peter’s Church, two cars were side-by-side when Scott allegedly fired at Benzino.

The hearse carrying the deceased and a limo filled with family members was reportedly covered with blood when it arrived at the funeral.

Scott was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder.
