Why did Sas get shot? Just days after the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star shocked fans with a social media update from his hospital bed, the 23-year-old is out and about, seemingly none the worse for wear. Sas has since shared further updates on his condition, claiming that his doctors called him a “Walking miracle” for his quick recovery from a head injury.
At the time, Sas was (understandably) upbeat about the fact that he survived a shot to the head with what looked like nothing more than a particularly bloody flesh wound. “Doc just told me I got a bullet in the back of my head, man,” Sas told fans. “He said I’m gonna be alright, though. Said I got a thick skull.” Sas’ video update accompanied the photo above, which has accrued more than 26,000 Instagram likes in just three short days.
But why did Sas get shot in the first place? According to noted LHHATL gossip blog Fameolous, the incident that resulted in Sas’ shooting might have just been a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Per the Fameolous report, Sas arrived at a Phoenix-area mansion for a paid appearance at a house party right in the middle of an argument about a safe that had been stolen during the party. The man who shot him “didn’t care” that Sas had just pulled up to the party; apparently, he (the shooter) “was shooting at everyone he thought participated in the safe being taken.” (Indeed, it looks like Sas was either shot while still in his car or while standing in the driveway after pulling up.)
The report goes on to claim that Sas took off for the hospital and the shooter fled the scene before the police arrived.
Sas has since given a very public thank you to a woman who was at the party and offered her help:
The docs say I'm a walkin miracle. Got shot in the head and was still able to walk & talk right after. This young lady approached me to take a picture and ended up in the car praying over me when shit went bad. Couldn't thank you enough @wardahassan_ prayers really do work! #PraiseBeAllah #MyAngelsGotMe #LongLiveDolla #Blessed?? #FreeScrappDeleon #NBL #MMMob
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta‘s crazy fifth season continues Monday nights on VH1.
