Beanie Sigel has been shot outside of a New Jersey home, following an altercation.

According to NBC 10, the shooting took place Friday morning (Dec. 5) at 9:45AM, on the 800 block of Spruce Avenue, in Pleasantville, N.J. The 'Feel It in the Air' rapper was shot in the back, according to his attorney Fortunato Perri, Jr. Afterwards, he was immediately transported to Atlantic Care Regional Medical Center, where he's currently undergoing surgery.

Perri, Jr. reveals that Sigel was returning home from dropping his kids off at school when a fight was taking place near his home. Apparently, the MC was not the intended victim.

A second man at the scene was also injured. He wasn't shot and refused medical treatment, reports Press of Atlantic City,

Police also chased a car they suspected was involved in the shooting and arrested one man, but his name has yet to be made available to the public.

Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was released from prison in August. The Philadelphia native was incarcerated for tax evasion, spending a total of two years behind bars.

At this time, the 40-year-old rhymer's condition is unknown.
