It's really such an awful way to end a year for Obie Trice as he unexpectedly experienced a gunshot wound while driving his SUV with his girlfriend on Detroit's Lodge Freeway around 1:10 a.m. on December 31, 2005. One of the bullets that were fired toward him went through the back window of his car and horrifyingly grazed his head, but fortunately the rapper did not encounter any serious injuries.
According to Michigan State Police Sergeant Mario Gonzalez, Trice continued to drive after the shot before exited the freeway in the suburb of Southfield and was taken to receive a treatment from Providence Hospital later that night. "He's doing fair, but he's naturally quite upset," Delois Askew, Trice's grandmother, told the Detroit News Sunday. "It's a puzzle why anyone would want to do this. Was it just a random incident, or did someone go after him? That's what we're trying to figure out."
Meanwhile, the police who still have no suspects of this incident have asked for the public's help to identify and locate the shooter. "We have very little to go on," Gonzalez admitted. "We're asking anyone who may have been on the Lodge at that time and saw the incident to contact us, because right now, we just don't have much information."
