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.

Maybe some of you non-educated "people" (and I use the word loosely) should have gotten out and voted...maybe you did vote, but the majority of America is ready for a change.. bush messed the country up .. so quit being haters... the black man is in the white house... we may not have gotten our 5 acres and a mule.. but we have the white house and a whole congress...now go kill yourself like most white people do when they can't take the pressure-- SAID IT LOUD..I'M BLACK AND I'M PROUD!!!

Crime is wrong no matter what race the person is. I see that some people are never going to change. Mrs. Obama is an educated woman who happens to be black and she is referred to as "First Ho'. I don't think all white people are serial killers like Jeffrey Dalmer was. There is bad and good in every race. Grow up and stop the hate. It gets us nowhere. All black people are not on welfare and foodstamps. All white people are imbred rednecks. Blacks fought and died for this country also. PLEASE STOP THE HATE
