Eddie Franklin, the son of music icon Aretha Franklin, is fighting for his life in Michigan hospital after being severely beaten in a robbery gone wrong at a gas station in Detroit overnight, The Detroit Free Press reports.
Eddie, who underwent emergency surgery early Tuesday, was attacked by approximately three people — two men and one woman — while pumping gas at the intersection of Plymouth and Evergreen Road, witnesses say. Cops in The Motor City are looking for a 19-year-old woman with short haircut and a man described as approximately six-feet tall with dreadlocks in connection with the crime. All three suspects are African-American.
Franklin’s condition remains unknown
