Rapper Benzino was shot in the right arm while driving to St. Peter’s Church in Plymouth for his mother’s funeral.

A Massachusetts funeral came with a bizarre epitaph: Arrest in peace.

A relative of hip-hop producer Benzino was busted Saturday for shooting the reality show star as they drove to his late mother’s Massachusetts sendoff, according to WHDH-TV in Boston.

Rapper Benzino was shot during the procession for his mother’s funeral in Plymouth, Mass., on Saturday. Here, the hearse covered in plastic and ringed by police tape.

The shooter opened fire from behind the wheel of his Bentley around 11:55 a.m., and was quickly taken into custody without incident on charges of armed assault with attempt to murder.

The bleeding Benzino — real name Raymond Scott, 48 — climbed out of his red Dodge SUV after the shooting and flagged down a passerby, authorities said.

He was first taken to the Duxbury police department and then to South Shore Hospital in stable condition, authorities said.

Cops said it was unclear what kind of beef ignited the gunfire as the cars drove behind the hearse carrying Mary Scott to the funeral Mass.

Investigators tend to the hearse that was carrying the body of Benzino’s mother. Cops say it was unclear what kind of beef ignited the gunfire.

The hearse was smudged with blood, covered in plastic and ringed by police tape outside the church.

The funeral Mass, though delayed by the shooting and the questioning of mourners by police, went off as planned, Father William Williams told The Boston Globe.
