Brooklyn Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez is under investigation by the NYPD for allegedly commanding his fellow officers to shoot 50 Cent last June.
Gonzalez is the commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park. He made the alleged order in a meeting before 50 Cent was expected to appear at an NYPD sanctioned boxing match later that evening in the Bronx.
The NY Daily News reports a witness claims Gonzalez told his officers if they saw 50 Cent at the boxing match, they should pull out their guns and “shoot him on sight.”
“The inspector just said that at roll call,” the witness said.
Gonzalez remains active on duty, as he has been for over 30 years, while the Internal Affairs Bureau investigates the situation. Gonzalez allegedly played the incident off as a bizarre joke.
50 Cent commented on the story on his Twitter.
This is how I wake up this morning, 🤷🏽♂️ This guy Emanuel Gonzales is a dirty cop abusing his POWER. The sad part is this man still has a badge and a gun.
I take this threat very seriously and im consulting with my legal counsel regarding my options moving forward. pic.twitter.com/5HWk2tqYFo
