50 Cent and 6ix9ine Flee for Cover After Shots Fired on Set!

Rappers 50 Cent and 6ix9ine were filming a music video when the sound of gunfire sent them fleeing for cover.

It wasn’t a sound effect — someone really opened fire. Police are investigating.

And to think that it’s only been weeks since 6ix9ine got his ass kicked. The world of rap can be dangerous.

TMZ reports that, on Tuesday night, 50 Cent and 6ix9ine (also known as Tekashi69) were sent running for cover when they heard gunshots on set.

The two were filming a new music video in Brooklyn on Tuesday at around 10:30 PM.

A vehicle described by witnesses as a white Porsche with New Jersey license plates opened fire just a stone’s throw from the set, firing multiple shots.

Shell casing evidence indicates that the shooter was using a 9 mm semi-automatic weapon.

Casanova and Uncle Murda were both also present on set.

A spokesperson for the NYPD spoke to HollywoodLife about exactly what went down.

“Tekashi 6ix9ine and 50 Cent were filming a music video in Brooklyn,” the statement confirms.

They were in the middle of production “when someone fired shots a block away.”

When we’re talking about gunfire, that distance seems insignificant.

Ultimately, police collected evidence “and eight shell casings were found.”

“The police doesn’t think anyone was hit,” the spokesperson reveals.

That is such a relief. But it does not make any of this less frightening.

“But,” the statement acknowledges. “They’re canvasing hospitals.”

Sometimes, someone gets shot and goes for help without contacting law enforcement. There can be many reasons for that. Some of them are even innnocuous.

But so far, this appears to be a crime with no direct victims “and no suspects have been identified.”

50 Cent has been shot nine times. Thankfully, this incident was not one of them.

(Yes, 50 Cent blaming Terry Crews for his own sexual assault was incredibly douchey, but he doesn’t deserve to be shot for that)

He’s not the only man there who has been on the receiving end of gun violence, however.

6ix9ine was recently robbed, pistol-whipped, and basically left for dead. Like, very recently.

On top of that, 6ix9ine is believe to be an associate to a person of interest in the Chief Keef shooting.

Despite all of that, sources close to the music video’s production believe that the shooting was unrelated to the stars.

Police, however, are unprepared to rule out that this was some sort of warning or intimidation tactic aimed at someone involved.

They hope to know more after they speak to a suspect.

In the mean time, 6ix9ine may enter prison as a registered sex offender after violating his parole following an incident in which he, an adult, was “partying” with a 13-year-old girl.

Though he may yet be able to weasel out of it at his new hearing on October 2, he likely has larger concerns on his mind than a possibly random, possibly victimless shooting.

Still, wouldn’t it be nice if there were fewer guns and this sort of thing happened less frequently?
