Details are still emerging about the shooting of Detroit rapper Peezy (aka Eastside Peezy), who is said to in critical condition. WDIV reported that a man had been shot in the head Sunday morning at the 3600 block of Fairview Street on Detroit's east side.

However, conflicting reports are now claiming there were two victims from two separate east side shootings. Although it has been confirmed that Peezy was shot, it appears that a different victim was the one shot in the head. That man is also recovering.

Just last month NBA star Andre Drummond praised Peezy as one of his favorite Detroit rappers and last year, Pontiac's JP Brown told Metro Times contributor Kahn Davison: "The artist I like the most out of the D right now would probably be Peezy. He sounds real mean when he raps; I like mean."

Peezy had just returned to his hometown of Detroit after a performance in Milwaukee.
