Police are still investigating an incident involving a round of shots fired during the filming of a 50 Cent and Tekashi 6ix9ine music video in Greenpoint earlier this week.

An NYPD spokesperson said the investigation is ongoing after a 911 caller reported that they heard multiple shots from Noble Street just before 9 p.m. on Aug. 14.

Police say a nearby location was being used for the filming of a music video involving the two New York-based rappers, but that no one was shot and no injuries were reported.

The two were reportedly filming a music video for “Get the Strap” along the Greenpoint waterfront, with photos and videos posted to social media showing some of the production’s outtakes in the area.

The rounds may have been directed toward Tekashi 6ix9ine, according to the Daily News.

Can't Defend Themselves

Its interesting how government enforcers (police) have a monopoly on guns.


They should ban these rapper videos, film shoots etc. here and in the entire country until
they can guarantee stuff like this will not happen.

Many people blame the NRA for not doing anything about gun violence. They are half right. The other half of the blame belongs to people like this, usually rappers, inner city areas, minorities etc. which account for app. 50% of all gun deaths/injures in this country, around app. 50,000 people a year.


The ten thumbs down on my post shows why our national cultural gun sickness that claims 100k+ lives and serious injures is so hard to cure.

The right blames too strict regulation and minorities for it, the left is obsessed with only regulation and the elimination of the NRA as the panacea. They are both wrong.

Only a policy of legality, regulation, responsibility and non promotion like we did with cigs. smoking is the answer to the cure.
