More Details Emerge In Beanie Shooting


The Philadelphia Daily News reports some additional details about Beanie’s shooting:

Sigel, 32, whose real name is Dwight Grant, partied with pals at Z-Bar, a Northern Liberties nightclub, until 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police said Sigel then dropped two friends off in Southwest Philadelphia. As he made his way back to South Philly, Sigel said he looked in his rearview mirror and spotted a car that he thought was following him.

Sigel pulled over on Snyder Avenue near 25th Street and let the car pass him. He then started to follow the other car, which led him on a winding trip that ended when the car stopped near 22nd and McClellan streets, a block away from Sigel’s boyhood home, he said.

The rap artist, who has had several albums that have gone platinum, told police two men jumped out of the car, and one of them brandished a gun. Sigel got out of his white Chevrolet Impala and confronted the men.

Sigel, who launched his own clothing line called "State Property," could only sputter, "Know who I am?" when the two men made it clear that they planned to rob him.

A second car pulled up behind Sigel’s Impala, and two more men emerged, one with a gun. Sigel told police he handed over his prized watch and a platinum chain to the thugs, who nonetheless fired four shots as he scurried back to his car. One of the bullets struck him in the shoulder.

The article also says that although the police were initially skeptical of Beanie’s story, it now appears to check out, despite the fact that nobody who lives in the area heard gunshots and no shell casings were found near the alleged scene.
