Philly Rapper Beanie Sigel Out of Hospital

About one month after being shot outside the South Jersey home where he was being electronically monitored, rapper Beanie Sigel left the hospital.

Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was released, and returned home, sometime over the weekend, said Pleasantville Police.

The 40-year-old State Property rapper was hospitalized in critical condition after being shot in the stomach on the morning of Dec. 5 in Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey.

Police didn't reveal how far along Sigel is in his recovery.

Authorities still have not named suspects in Sigel’s shooting, only a couple of persons of interest including Sigel’s own sister-in-law.

Police said it didn’t appear that Sigel was the intended target of the shooting.

Sigel was released from federal prison in August after serving a two-year sentence for tax evasion, spent time in a Philadelphia halfway house and was serving out his probation on electronic monitoring in the Atlantic County community when he was shot.
