Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’s Lyndon Ahlik Smith, a.k.a “Sas Deleon,” was shot in the back of the head in Phoenix late Saturday night (July 2). There’s no word on the identity of the shooter or what fueled the violence.
The former member of the group Da Raskalz Cru and cousin of the deceased rapper, Dolla, was in town to host a party.
Fortunately, Deleon’s “thick skull” saved him from what could have been a life-ending incident. He posted video on Instagram updating fans on the status of his health.
“The doctor just told me I got a bullet in the back of my head,” he said in the clip before briefly directing the camera towards his wound. “They said I got a thick skull. Y’all pray for me though. I appreciate all the love and support. God got me. Allah got me. I ain’t tripping.”

This isn’t the first time a member of the Love & HipHop: Atlanta cast has been lit up with bullets. Two years ago, former cast member Raymond “Benzino” Scott, was shot by his nephew, Gail Scott, at his mother’s funeral in Boston.
Considering the dangers of fame and jealousy, it’s certainly wise for reality stars — and celebrities in general — to be cautious when maneuvering in their day-to-day lives.
