Beanie Sigel and some of Philly and North Jersey’s finest citizens were celebrating his birthday at Solo, that is until a fella caught a bullet with his chest:
What was supposed to be a celebration of Beanie Sigel’s 35th birthday turned into a near deadly shooting that left one man critically injured.
On Saturday (March 7), Sigel (Dwight Grant) held his party in Penn’s Landing at Club Solo.
The event drew nearly 600 partygoers, and according to Philadelphia authorities Sigel’s mother handled admission duties at the club’s entrance.
Because of the Philly emcee’s previous criminal record, officials from the Department of Licenses/Inspections and the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement conducted a venue safety search at 10PM.
The shooting occurred later that evening at 1:35AM, when 24 year old Tyheem Baker of Camden, New Jersey was shot in the chest after coming out of Club Solo’s bathroom stall.
The shooting reportedly followed an argument the victim had with two unidentified men. Baker is currently listed in stable condition.
According to Sigel attorney Fortunato Perri Jr, his client was performing on stage at the time of the crime, and has no knowledge of the shooting or the perpetrators.
At press time, the venue is being investigated for its adherence to proper weapon searches and carding of patrons.
Last March, Sigel was sentenced to three months in prison for a third probation violation. The conviction was handed down following Sigel’s positive testing for illegal drugs.
Per an agreement with the courts, Sigel underwent drug treatment in order to maintain a 12-month supervised release.
At press time, Beanie Sigel could not be reached for comment.
It’s always something, y’all. It looks like it’s never gonna stop either.
