Gunman Reportedly Opens Fire On Set Of 50 Cent, Tekashi69 Music Video
No one was injured, sources report.
An unidentified gunman fired off a barrage of shots on the set of rappers 50 Cent and Tekashi69’s music video on Tuesday, according to reports.
The two were on the last day of filming the visuals for 50 Cent’s “Get the Strap” in Brooklyn on West St. when shots rang out at around 9:30 p.m., according to the New York Daily News. The gunman fired eight rounds from about half a block away, the outlet reports, but did not hit anyone.
According to witnesses, the gunman drove a white Porsche with New Jersey license plates, and actually fired at least 11 shots using a 9 mm semi-automatic weapon at around 10:30 p.m. that night, TMZ reported.
Rappers Casanova and Uncle Murda were also on set at the time of the shooting, TMZ reports.
The incident is currently under investigation by police, with a source close to the investigation telling the Daily News that Tekashi69 — whose real name is Daniel Hernandez — was the target.
Hernandez has had a longstanding feud with fellow rapper Chief Keef. After Chief Keef was shot at by two anonymous gunmen while standing outside of a New York City hotel in June, TMZ reported that Hernandez was under investigation by police for possible involvement in the incident. He denied any involvement.
Police have yet to take anyone into custody in relation to Tuesday’s shooting, TMZ says, and are currently searching for any footage that could be used to identify the anonymous gunman, according to the Daily News.
