Lewisville, TX – Yella Beezy, best known for his hit single “That’s On Me,” has been hospitalized after being shot in Lewisville, Texas on Sunday (October 14).

Central Track, a Dallas-based alternative publication, first confirmed Beezy was the 26-year-old victim following reports of a drive-by shooting by the Dallas Morning News and a local CBS station.

According to police, Beezy was driving Sam Rayburn Tollway when another vehicle pulled up alongside him to attack. More than a dozen shots were fired and Beezy was struck three times.

Police were called around 3:30 a.m. CST and found Beezy on the State Highway 121 Bypass. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he’s still alive despite his injuries.

Beezy earned his first Billboard Hot 100 song in August with “That’s On Me.” The track has found success due to its strong radio presence, spending 19 weeks on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.
