A rapper associated with the Wu-Tang Clan was shot on Staten Island Saturday, said law enforcement sources.
Solomon Childs, whose real name is Ryan Dale, was struck on Forest Avenue and taken to the hospital, sources said. Childs’ injuries are not life-threatening, the sources said.
Childs is a Wu-Tang Clan affiliate, which is different from a full-fledged member of the group. Childs’ older brother, whose stage name is Cappadonna, is an original Wu-Tang Clan member.
Police are investigating the shooting, which prompted messages of concern on Childs’ Facebook page.
