*Beanie Sigel is still in critical condition Monday following a shooting last week, according to reports.

Though he was not the intended target, Sigel, 40, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was shot outside a New Jersey home on Friday after he had just returned from dropping his kids off at school, authorities say.

“Apparently, there was a struggle of some type, which led to Mr. Grant being shot and that is all we have at this point,” Pleasantville Police Chief Jose Ruiz told the Associated Press.

Sigel was listed in critical condition, but was awake following his surgery later that day.

In August, Sigel was released from prison after serving two years for tax evasion and had been living in a halfway house. He was scheduled to perform on Dec. 18 at a concert titled “Beanie Sigel: The Return” at Philadelphia’s Theater of the Living Arts.
