There’s two sides to every story and now we’re hearing what Benzino’s nephew, Gai Scott has to say about shooting his own uncle.
“I shot at him; I was in fear for my wife and a baby,” Gai said, according to a police report filed in court. “He’s been threatening my life.”
Just last week, Scott shot Benzino while en route to the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star’s mother’s funeral. And while Benzino has been documenting his recovery on Instagram, Scott was locked up pending a dangerousness hearing set for today. He was charged with armed assault with intent to murder, but pled not guilty claiming it was self defense.
According to the Boston Globe, “Gai Scott told police that his uncle had been sending him text messages threatening to kill him in the week before the shooting and that he purchased a firearm to protect himself.” As for the reason why he opened fire? According to State Trooper Robert M. Klimas’ report, Benzino aka Raymond E. Scott, flashed a gun first.
Gai Scott said he was driving a black 2006 Bentley behind a hearse in the procession in Duxbury when his uncle pulled up beside him in the left lane, rolled down his window, and said, “You got a problem with me” and then threatened to kill him, Klimas wrote.
“Gai stated that Raymond reached down low and when Raymond raised his hand he ‘flashed’ a gun at Gai,” the report said. He then pulled out a 9mm Walther pistol from a holster on his right hip and fired it at his uncle, the report said.
When that weapon ran out of ammunition, Gai Scott said, he started firing a .45-caliber gun until it was spent. He then loaded a spare magazine into the 9mm firearm, the report said. Scott is a legal gun owner, the report said.
As for Benzino, he just posted the following video on Instagram thanking his fans for their support.
‘Black Panther’ Sequel To Focus On Okoye & Dora Milaje?!
A Billi, A Billi, A Billi … when your movie nets a billion dollars OF COURSE there’s going to be a sequel!!
As Black Panther continues to dominate the box office, talk has already turned to a sequel. Marvel president Kevin Fiege confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that they will definitely be returning the Wakanda stating, “we absolutely will do that.” But when asked what direction the movie would take, his answer was intriguing:
“I think there’s lots of potential. It’s a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters you just named. I think Shuri’s astounding, and you’ll see much more of her in our universe. Okoye, I think I’d watch three action films just Okoye. I’m not saying we’re doing that, but I’m saying that we’re intrigued by them.”
Yessss, be intrigued! We all need more Danai Gurira (who plays Dora Milaje leader, Okoye) in our lives.
