During his morning show on Monday, comedian and radio host Rickey Smiley revealed that his 19-year-old daughter, Aaryn, was shot three times over the July 4th holiday weekend in Houston.
“I wasn’t even going to say anything about this. I’ve been dealing with this all morning, sitting up here with butterflies in my stomach trying to do the show. My youngest daughter was shot last night,” Smiley said on the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” Monday. “She’s in the hospital right now… I’m just so angry.”
The Houston Police Department confirmed in a statement that the incident occurred at 6898 South Freeway in Houston Sunday night. The statement went on to say the victims, three men and one woman, were transported to an area hospital.
