Cops say Bryel Kelly, 15, was shot by the owner of a barbershop during the alleged attempt to take cash from the store.

Bryel’s older brother, Brandon Kelly, is in custody, suspected of possibly operating as a look-out man, cops say.

Carey Kelly, R. Kelly’s brother, says his son was shot in the lung and liver. But he believes the teen was a victim, not a perpetrator.

“People have tried to rob us,” he told WLS TV. “They think we got money…That’s R. Kelly’s money, that’s not our money.”

Carey Kelly’s profile increased during the prolonged R. Kelly sex tape investigation when he claimed R. Kelly offered him $50,000, a house and record deal to say that he – Carey – was the man recorded in sex acts with an apparently underage teen. R. Kelly was acquitted of child porn charges this year.
