Rickey Smiley announced Monday morning his daughter Aaryn was shot over the weekend in Houston, Texas.

“My youngest daughter was shot last night. I’m just so angry right now. She’s laying up in the hospital and probably going to have to go into surgery. And it ain’t hardly any flights so I have to fly to Dallas and then drive down to Houston because it’s a seven-hour layover,” he said.

The father of four opened up about the details of the shooting and went on to condemn the violence Black people experience within our own communities.

“All the stuff these people out here trying to do to fight for the rights of Black people, this is no discredit to Black Lives Matter because I believe that and I’m with that movement 110% and one has nothing to do with the other. But there are some criminals in our community that we need to do something about.”

The radio personality is no stranger to gun violence. In his 2018 Unsung Hollywood episode, the 51-year-old revealed he was shot by an unknown assailant with a 12-gauge shotgun. Watch below.

Our prayers are thoughts are with Rickey and his entire family.
