A noted German rap singer was shot in the shoulder in the country's capital.

Berlin (dpa) - A German rap singer of Palestinian origin was shot in the shoulder at a street corner in Berlin, police said Tuesday.

The 25-year-old singer, who performs using the name Massiv, was standing next to his car in the suburb of Neukoelln when he was approached by a masked man on Monday evening.

The man said something which the singer did not understand then pulled a gun and fired three times, hitting him in the shoulder.

The assailant fled and the rapper was taken to hospital for treatment but discharged a short time later.

Massiv, whose parents came to Germany as refugees, has a record contract with Sony BMG. He sings gangsta rap songs about violence and life on the streets.
