The police in New York are investigating statements by a commander of the force. He would have told his colleagues in 2017 that they had to shoot at 50 Cents as soon as they saw it.

“I take this threat very seriously and now look at possible steps”

The corps indicated earlier that it was a joke. The commander made the remark prior to a charity box race of the NYPD where 50 Cent was one of the guests. Opposite USA Today, a spokesman now indicates that the case is being investigated internally.

The musician lets Instagram know to be in conversation with his lawyer about the case. “I take this threat very seriously and now look at possible steps”, he wrote.

“I am concerned that I have not been informed of this threat by the NYPD before.” He also shared a photo of the commander and wrote that the man is not suitable to carry out his profession.
