Get the strap Shots fired as 50 Cent Tekashi 6ix9ine film rap video in Brooklyn

Shots were fired near the set of a music video in Brooklyn that featured rappers 50 Cent and Tekashi 6ix9ine, police sources said Wednesday. The rappers were filming a video for the upcoming song "Get the Strap" on West St. near the Greenpoint waterfront in NY around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday (Aug. 14), when the unidentified man opened fire.

Along with Tekashi and 50 Cent, Casanova and Uncle Murda were reportedly on set.

Police are actively investigating the shooting, and the sell casings revealed that the shooter was using a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol.

But Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended his company's decision last week not to ban Jones, saying he did not break any rules.

Sources connected to Tekashi believe the shooter wasn't targeting any of the other rappers, but law enforcement has not confirmed. There are no videos of the shooting incident, but cops are checking the area for surveillance cameras that may have caught the license plate of the vehicle the shooter was driving.

Fans can hear Get the Strap when it's unveiled on the eighth episode (titled "A Friend of the Family") of Starz series Power produced and starring 50 Cent as drug dealer Kanan Stark.

In July, the "Gummo" rapper told police he was kidnapped at gunpoint and robbed of his jewelry after two stickup men rear ended his SUV in Crown Heights.
