Someone fired off a barrage of bullets as rap and film star 50 Cent filmed a music video with Tekashi 6ix9ine in Brooklyn.
A gunman fired several rounds about a block from where rappers Tekashi 6ix9ine and 50 Cent were filming a music video in Brooklyn Tuesday night, police said.
The gunman fired off at least eight shots on Noble Street near the bank of the East River in Greenpoint at about 8:45 p.m., authorities said. Nobody was wounded by the gunfire, according to police.
Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was filming a video with the Queens-born 50 Cent on West Street, about a block from the scene, police said.
Police are investigating whether the gunman was firing in the direction of the video set.
It’s not clear if the gunman was aiming at anyone, although those on the set were pointing fingers at Brooklyn-born rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez.
“Police on the scene said Tekashi was the target,” a source close to the production said.
Tekashi 6ix9ine is in a current war of words with rapper Chief Keef that may have turned violent.
In early June, a gunshot was fired as Chief Keef and a friend stood outside the W Hotel in Midtown. No one was hit, although some suspected it had something to do with his ongoing social media beef with Tekashi, who was in LA when the shot was fired.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s last trip to New York ended with the rapper landing behind bars. After returning to the U.S. from a European tour on July 11 he was grabbed at JFK Airport on an arrest warrant from Texas, where he was wanted for committing a misdemeanor assault.
After two days on Rikers Island, the rapper was released on bail after he complained of receiving threats from locked-up members of the Trinitarios street gang and had to be moved to a secure facility on the island.
