Benny the Butcher, a rapper, suffers a gunshot wound below the belt in Houston during what appears like an attempted robbery.

According to Houston Police Department, the rapper was in town Saturday and visiting a local Walmart with a couple friends in tow. While they were in their car in the lot, we’re told a car with 5 guys inside pulled up next to them and whipped out guns, demanding their chains.

Apparently, Benny and his his friends were moving too slow for the alleged robbers’ liking and cops say one of the 5 fired a round into Benny’s leg, which caused the crooks to flee. We’re told Benny and his friends booked it too, but eventually pulled over and called the police.

Benny was taken to a hospital for treatment as his condition is unknown at this time. Cops say the men who attempted to rob him are also still at large, and an investigation is underway.

It would be recalled another rapper, Boosie was also shot in the leg in the Lone Star state just a few hours away that same day. Somewhat different circumstances there, but same result, he was left with a bullet hole in his leg as well. OduNews.com understands that Boosie is already recuperating.
