Rap performer Blade Icewood has been killed in a drive-by shooting, seven months after another gun attack left him paralyzed from the chest down.

Icewood, 27, whose legal name was Darnell Lyndsey, was in a wheelchair inside his Range Rover on Tuesday night when a shooter pulled along side in a vehicle and fired, Detroit police say. Icewood was dead at the scene. Police have no suspects, The Detroit Free Press said yesterday.

This month, Icewood had planned to release his third CD, titled Blood, Sweat and Tears. In September, gunmen forced their way into an Oak Park, Mich., apartment and opened fire. Icewood was critically hurt. AP
