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.

That's right pull out the race card again like every black american does when they get in trouble. And for Obama the Terrorist he will divide this country once again and put us back 200 years, and if he doesn't that bulldog of a wife will make sure of it. Pretty funny how before he won the election she hated AMERICA now all of a sudden Obama the Terrorist wins and she loves AMERICA....................

I am not up to date on whoever the "Kellys" are, but sounds like r.kelly must be a "tax payer" that makes money through deception.........actually, cannot do whatever it is ..........he does. But, did you all stop to realize , perhaps, the nephew thought the Barber Shop was a Bank and there would be plenty of money to receive through his expertise. Hummmmmmmmmmmmm.........too bad the owner was such a bad shot.

You uneducated, racist morons really should keep your comments geared toward the subject matter. Michelle Obama and her children are not the issue here. That is what's wrong with you narrow minded idiots. You want to lump all black people into one pot and stir. Seems to me there are more poor, ignorant, white people commiting horrible crimes but I guess that's the fault of black people. I guess you don't realize that every race has it's idiots and not all people of that race agree with or tolerate that type of behavior, but in the past few days, the lower dregs who hide behind their keyboards and spew forth their "hood" vernacular and hatred wouldn't dare to reveal themselves. Oh how the tide has turned. My advice to you is if you can't respect the First Family Elect....get out of the USA no one is holding you here and when the financial handouts come down from "that man" you hate because you know you aren't in the top 3% to be taxed, make sure you give it back o.k.?

Here comes Rev Wright creeping out of the hole he's been hiding in. We have heard the racist sermons of Rev Wright and the Father phager (sp) we heard the congregation go wild with happiness and excitement, we can see the ugly face of Michelle Obama who has never been proud of her country. So save you preaching. 95% of blacks voted for the Obama, it would not have mattered one bit if he was an axe murderer. If 95% of whites would have voted for McCain he would be prez and whites would all be racist. So save your preaching. a racist is a racist no matter the color. Racism is human nature. Blacks are the vote that lost the gay rights to marry in Cali, but gays prefer to bash the Mormons. Wonder why? We are all racist, so stop you high brow attitudes you ain't that good of actors.

It's easy to blame blacks for the gays losing the right to marry; afterall someone has to be the scapegoat. Most of the blacks that I know voted for Obama, not because of the color of his skin, but because of his policies. Funny how the whites that voted for McCain were never chastised because they voted for someone of thier own race. I know plenty of whites who felt uncomfortable voting for someone of a different race and decided to vote for McCain, even though his economic policy would continue to cripple them.
