Lil Nizzy was listed in critical condition in a hospital while Bey remains hospitalized in critical but stable condition. According to local ABC 13 news, Nizzy and his cousin were riding bikes in their own neighborhood when they were pounced upon and shot. The killing took place just a few minutes after the rapper left his house.
