American rapper Benny the Butcher was wounded on Saturday during an attempted robbery at a Walmart store in Houston. He was shot in the leg.
According to the international news source, Benny, whose real name is Jeremie Damon Pennick, was visiting friends in Houston when they went to a retailer. They were sitting in a parking lot when another vehicle with five men inside reportedly showed weapons and demanded their chains and jewelry.
One of the attackers fired a shot at the rapper’s leg and fled before Pennick and his friends called police. Pennick was taken to a hospital.
An investigation into the matter is still underway.
