Beanie Sigel is in police custody and was charged
with attempted murder today, for a shooting that occurred outside of a bar in
West Philadelphia earlier in the week.
Sigel turned himself in to authorities after
the Roc The Mic concert at the Tweeder center in Camden New Jersey, in connection
with the shooting of Terrence Speller.
Sigel allegedly shot Speller in the stomach and
foot around 1 a.m. Tuesday. Police said that Speller argued with two women outside
of the Pony Tail Bar on South 52nd Street.
Police said that Speller was walking with two
people when a Cadillac pulled over and a man Speller identified as Sigel asked
the women which man he had argued with and then fired two shots at Speller.
Sigel is also awaiting trial for aggravated assault
charges and he is expected to be arraigned next week on separate firearms charges.
Sigel’s attorney, Fortunato Perri Jr., said that
his client was innocent and said that Sigel had been at the bar earlier in the
night, prior to the shooting.
Speller is in critical condition and is recovering
at the Hospital of University of Pennsylvania.
