WASHINGTON (AP) _ New York rapper Cam'ron was shot and wounded during a botched carjacking near a waterfront night spot, his manager said Sunday.

The artist, who was recovering at Howard University Hospital, had stopped at a traffic light shortly after midnight when a man attempted to steal his Lamborghini, said his manager, Big Joe.

When Cam'ron refused to give up the car and attempted to drive away, the gunman fired a single shot that passed through both of Cam'ron's arms, said Lynn Hobson, a spokeswoman for his label, Diplomat Records.
