Rygin King had to be airlifted from the Falmouth hospital where he was being treated for gunshot wounds sustained in a shooting last Sunday, to a new undisclosed hospital.
A group of men showed up at the Falmouth hospital trying to gain access to the deejay. The hospital alerted the police and the men were arrested but later released.

According to Rygin King’s management the move to a secret location is not only to protect the artist’s physical well being but also to guard his privacy as videos and photos of the deejay in the hospital have been released on the internet.
“After Rygin was shot, someone leaked photos and videos of the artiste being wheeled in the operating room at Savanna-la-Mar hospital. We understand and are aware of the media interest, but we thought that it was vital that Rygin was moved from Falmouth to a new secure undisclosed location for security reasons,” a member of Rygin King’s management team told 18 Karat Reggae.
The deejay has been improving steadily since being shot but it is unknown when he will be released from the hospital.
“The artiste is not out of the woods yet, he still needs prayers but the doctors have been very professional, and they are doing all they can do to ensure that he makes a full and speedy recovery,” a member of the management team said.
