PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man has been ordered held without bail after pleading not guilty to shooting his hip-hop artist and reality TV star uncle.

Gai (guy) Scott of Randolph was ordered held Monday pending a hearing to determine whether he’s a danger to society. That hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

Police say Scott shot Benzino, whose real name is Raymond Scott, on Saturday on Route 3 in Duxbury as Benzino came upon his mother’s funeral procession.

Gai Scott was charged with assault with intent to murder. His lawyer says his client acted in self-defense and legally owned the gun.

Benzino was treated at a Boston-area hospital for a gunshot wound. He is a cast member of the VH1 reality show “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” and CEO of Hip-Hop Weekly magazine.
