Scotty McCreery Held Up at Gunpoint

A scary end to the weekend for Scotty McCreery. He, along with some friends, were held up by a gunman and robbed.

The American Idol winner splits his time between touring and going to school at North Carolina State University. He was visiting friends at an apartment in Raleigh, N.C. Sunday night when 3 armed robbers broke into the apartment where Scotty and four others were hanging out.

Police say the robbers forced their way into the apartment around 2am Monday morning. No one was hurt in the incident but all the people in the apartment, including Scotty, did lose their cell phones and wallets. Neighbors described the sounds they heard as the robbery was in progress as “chaos” and lots of yelling.

The singer just completed his second year at university and will continue touring this Friday.
