Cops: R. Kelly Nephew Shot During Robbery

11/7/2008 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

R. Kelly's 15-year-old nephew was shot yesterday -- and cops say he may have been trying to rob a barbershop.

The nephew might've been shot twice by the store owner, according to police -- but the victim's father Carey Kelly (R.'s brother) says the kid may have just been an innocent victim of someone else who was robbing the store.

The nephew currently is being treated at a Chicago area hospital for a chest wound.

UPDATE:
According to FOX 32, cops have the injured nephew's brother -- Brandon -- in custody for the alleged robbery.

lol, I assume this was a 'barbershop' similar to the one in those awful Ice Cube movies...that guy must've been hoping to get away with the entire 60 or so dollars a place like that might have in the register at any given time. Totally worth being shot over.

In the Black community the barbershop is often use to sell drugs that's why they can have LOTS of CASH around

Does this family ever admit to any wrong doing? I guess not.. It's okay to pee on underage girls and rob barbershops.. I don't understand why people allow this and still guy this idiots music.. He sucks and his family is full of criminals.

First man appointed by the Chicago hood prez Rahm Emanuel, sat on the board of Freddie Mac during the time they were cooking the books and Rahm and his wife Amy Ruhl pay NO property tax in Chicago on their mansion. Its a foundation. This is Chicago, Thug City. Obama is gonna pay for the gas in their car and their house payments and holy hell is gonna break out if they don't get! so the ONE, We've been Waiting For is gonna have to collect those evil guns. It's just not FAIR that all America doesn't look like Chicago, but it will. This is not gonna be good for the "first ho's" children
