Police in Jersey City, New Jersey, want 50 Cent and the people who were traveling with him early Tuesday morning to turn themselves in for questioning about a shooting that occurred around midnight last night.
According to police, not long after 50 and members of his crew stepped inside the Doubletree Hotel in Jersey City, shots were fired. Police investigating the crime scene don't know what type of guns were used, but they found 10 shell casings from two different caliber of bullets in front of the hotel and 200 feet away from the Doubletree in a tire shop, the window of which was shattered by a bullet.
A hotel surveillance camera caught the entire incident on tape, officers said. Police are analyzing the footage to determine if someone was firing on 50 and company and if the rapper's associates fired as well. Police do not know at this point if anyone was injured.
Eyewitnesses told police that after the incident, 50 was whisked away in his SUV.
Police are giving 50 Cent five days to turn himself in before they issue a warrant for his arrest. A spokesperson for the rapper did not return calls by press time.
