The 16-year-old nephew of R. Kelly was charged as an adult with attempted murder, attempted armed robbery and aggravated discharge of a firearm after allegedly trying to rob a barbershop in Chicago, only to be shot by the owner.      

       Brayel, the son of R. Kelly’s estranged brother Carey Kelly, is scheduled to return to court for a Dec. 3 preliminary hearing. He faces six to 30 years in prison if convicted, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.

 

       Calumet City police told MTV News that on Nov 6 at about 11:40 a.m., Brayel went into the barbershop and allegedly tried to rob the owner by flashing a gun and demanding that he place his money and jewelry in a plastic bag.       

       Though the owner complied, he also drew a gun. Police said Kelly fired, and the victim returned fire, shooting Kelly in the back. Carey Kelly told reporters that one bullet collapsed his son’s lung and the other pierced his liver, and the boy remains hospitalized in intensive care at Advocate Christ Medical Center.       

       Brayel’s older brother Brandon, who allegedly acted as a lookout, has not been charged.
