Rapper Obie Trice Shoots Girlfriend’s Teen Son During Argument
Obie Trice was arrested after he allegedly shot his now ex-girlfriend’s son during a domestic dispute last week. The teen placed an order of protection against the rapper.
According to 7 Action News, Obie Trice was reportedly intoxicated when he shot the 18-year-old boy in the groin at their home in Commerce Township, Michigan. A statement written by the victim said the 42-year-old rapper was arguing with his then-girlfriend when the teen decided to break the fight last Thursday:
“That upset him which led to him pulling a gun on me and shooting me. The shot hit me in my left leg. This caused me to have a closed fracture of left tuberosity. I am terribly afraid of him because he’s a dangerous drunk.”
Investigators reported the 40-year-old woman and her son tried to leave the home but Trice went into his bedroom, grabbed an unregistered handgun, and was approached by the teen. He saw the gun in Trice’s hand and tried to disarm him but was shot in the process.

“At this point, the case is still pending an investigation. We believe when all the facts come to light that Mr. Trice will be vindicated,”
He has been released from jail but his charges of felony assault are currently pending based on the outcome of the investigation.
