Portuguese police have revealed they are looking to speak to ‘two English-speaking individuals’ in connection with the shooting of British rapper Mist.

In a statement, the Policia Judiciaria admitted they are investigating the incident but suggested that the ‘modus operandi of the suspects does not fit the typical sort of robbery’.

The Birmingham star was rushed to hospital after being shot in the leg during a burglary in a luxury villa in the Algarve.

The burglars allegedly took Mist’s passport, phones and jewellery in the apparent break-in near the Quinta do Lago resort.

Mist, real name Rhys Thomas Sylvester, was driven to Faro Hospital by two friends, who told police that the 27-year-old was shot in the leg at around 10pm local time on Tuesday night.

‘The Policia Judiciaria is investigating the possible commission of a crime of robbery around 11pm yesterday/on Tuesday (AUGUST 27) at a private property in the parish of Almancil,’ the statement read.

‘The crime in question, which has yet to be clarified, was perpetrated by two English-speaking individuals with firearms. During the incident a shot was fired which hit one of the occupants of the property, a British man, in a lower limb.


‘He was taken to a hospital A&E and discharged after treatment for a superficial gunshot wound.

‘The modus operandi of the suspects does not fit the typical sort of robbery, with nothing having been moved or taken from inside the property apartment from the victim’s personal belongings. Investigations are continuing.’

Fans, friends and colleagues of the MOBO-winning rapper have shared their support on social media, with Yungen tweeting: ‘Prayers for Mist. I hope he’s good.’

The So High rapper spent the last month in Portugal after arriving to perform at the Afrobeat Nation festival at the start of August.

He had been sharing pictures with pals on the beach, with his last Instagram post being a video of him smoking and dancing in a house.
