Rapper Rich Homie Quan raced to his manager father's hospital bedside on Monday (29Sep14) after learning he had been shot four times in an attempted robbery.

Corey Lamar had stopped by the barbershop he owns in his native Atlanta, Georgia when the ambush occurred.

Gunfire erupted during the hold up and Lamar was shot four times, according to the hip-hop star's representative.

He was admitted to a local hospital, where he was taken into surgery.

According to Tmz.com, Quan's dad is listed in critical condition, but is expected to survive.

The news emerges weeks after Quan had his own run-in with an attempted thief while attending a boxing match in Cincinnati, Ohio. An unidentified male made a forceful grab for the rapper's necklace at the Adrien Broner/Emmanuel Taylor fight on 5 September (14), but ran off empty-handed after the star fought him off.
