The New York Police Department is investigating allegations that a precinct commander threatened rapper and actor 50 Cent…
The New York Daily News reported Sunday that Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez, who is commander of the city’s 72nd precinct in Brooklyn, allegedly told officers to shoot 50 Cent “on sight” during a roll call in the station house.
New York police did not confirm the date the alleged comment was made.
The Daily News reported the incident was not recorded and that Gonzalez tried to pass off the comment as a joke.
50 Cent responded to the story:
“This is how I wake up this morning, This guy Emanuel Gonzales (sic) is a dirty cop abusing his POWER,” 50 Cent said on Twitter. “The sad part is this man still has a badge and a gun. I take this threat very seriously and im (sic) consulting with my legal counsel regarding my options moving forward.”
