A big argument broke out and it was among the family members. That is when Benzino ended up getting shot and it was really surprising to everyone. Gai Scott, the nephew of Benzino, is the one being charged with the shooting. Nobody seems to really know what the family was fighting about or what caused it.

His mother died on March 21. It is really sad that this would all go down at the funeral where they are trying to pay their respects to her.
