The rapper's manager, Six, confirmed the shooting, but said despite rumors, Spice is still alive and in critical condition at an unspecified hospital.
According to Six, Spice was shot twice, once in the chin and another time in the chest, which just missed his heart by inches.
"Yes, it's true," Six said. "Right now, we're asking for everyone to keep Spice in their prayers."
Spice 1 is being treated at an area hospital, unknown due to the circumstances of the shooting. Despite being in serious condition, Six says he is expected to pull through.
