What police are describing as a case of road rage is at the heart of a shooting involving rapper Freaky Zeeky (real name: Ezekial James) in New York. A member of the Diplomats, Zeeky was shot in the chest and abdomen Friday, and is in stable condition at St. Vincent's Hospital, according to a spokesperson. A second man was shot to death during the traffic dispute.

The altercation began after a silver-colored sedan had what police describe as a "minor fender-bender" with the rapper's vehicle. After the two cars pulled over, gunfire erupted. Police say there is no evidence those involved in the shooting knew each other, and that the gunplay was "just a spur of the moment occurrence."
