Houston rhymer Trae Tha Truth was shot early this morning (June 20) while in attendance at Scores Cabaret, an after-hours establishment in the city's Southwest section. MyFoxHouston.com reports that the Street King creator, born Frazier Thompson III, was among five people wounded. Three victims died at the scene.

Of the three victims killed, two were identified as males and one female. Trae Tha Truth and another male that was shot were subsequently taken to hospitals. The rapper is recovering from his injuries and reportedly cooperating with Houston Police Department homicide detectives.

A photo of Trae, dressed in a hospital gown, was released via Twitter Wednesday. "Everybody TRAE is ok. Minor gunshot wound," Twitter user @LowLifeDynasty tweeted. The southern MC, who recently signed to T.I.'s Grand Hustle imprint, was seated upright and looked to be in good spirits.
