Days after the near-fatal shooting of rap veteran Beanie Sigel, new reports claim police won’t side with his attorney’s claim of the 40-year-old being targeted.
According to reports, cops won’t confirm the lawyer’s claim.
“If he’s got information related to the case, we would like to have it,” Captain Sean Riggin of the Pleasantville Police Department told the Daily News on Tuesday. Riggin says the investigation is ongoing, and cops “have developments we expect to release in the not-so-distant future.” (New York Daily News)

Last week, Sigel’s attorney said his client was not intentionally targeted.
Attorney Fortunato Perri, Jr. talked to Action News after speaking with Sigel’s family. He says, according to the family, Sigel had just come back home after dropping his kids off at school when he was shot twice in the stomach. Sigel was not the intended target, Perri said. (ABC 6)

According to Pleasantville Police Chief Jose Ruiz, an altercation between Sigel and 22-year-old victim Umar Salahuddin may have sparked the shooting.
Salahuddin, whose family owns the house where the shooting occurred, refused medical treatment and was uncooperative, cops said. Ruiz said Sigel and Salahuddin appear to be related. “Apparently, there was a struggle of some type, which led to Mr. Grant being shot and that is all we have at this point,” Ruiz said. (Page Six)
