Benzino’s Nephew Convicted Of Shooting Him During Funeral Procession

(AllHipHop News) Benzino’s nephew Gai Scott has been convicted of shooting his famous uncle during a funeral procession for his mother in March of 2014.

Gai Scott was originally charged with armed assault with the intent to murder.

Yesterday (August 19), Scott was found guilty of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

He was cleared of armed assault with intent to murder after a six-day trial.

Gai Scott, 39, was pushing a 2006 Bentley when he fired shots into a vehicle Benzino was riding in, as they traveled to funeral services for Zino’s mom.

The shooting was reportedly linked to a family feud over the management of Bezino’s mother’s land.

Benzino, born Raymond Scott, was struck in the shoulder and back and made a full recovery.

A Plymouth Superior Court Judge will sentence Scott to prison on August 26.
