This is the latest we can find on 50 Cent's latest problems;
Jersey City Police Capt. Ron Sprofera said 50 Cent has five days to turn himself in for questioning or face an arrest warrant.
"There are a lot of questions to be asked, the least of which being: Why did they run? Why was there a delay in calling us?" Sprofera said.
The shooting took place blocks from where 50 Cent's rival, rapper Ja Rule, was shooting the movie "Cook Out," cops said. The two millionaires have been embroiled in a long, public dispute.
Last week, Ja Rule's close friend and fellow rapper D.O. Cannon was gunned down in Queens.
Cannon, whose real name was Gerard Fields, 26, was killed Thursday night in Hollis, where Ja Rule and 50 Cent grew up. Ja Rule and Cannon were signed to Murder Inc., a record label under federal investigation.
Cannon was murdered days after Shadaha (Jah) Bey - who often was seen with 50 Cent's crew, G Unit - was shot dead in the same neighborhood.
"There is apparently some sort of war going on," Jersey City Police Sgt. Edgar Martinez said.
In his short life, 50 Cent has been shot nine times and stabbed. He was born to a teenage drug-dealing mother who was killed when he was 8. He started dealing drugs himself before he was a teenager.
On Tuesday, 50 Cent checked into a Doubletree room rented by his label, Interscope Records, to shoot a music video.
Police sources said it appeared he has been hiding out in Jersey City in recent days, alternating between the Hyatt and the Doubletree. Ja Rule also has stayed at the Hyatt while filming the movie.
50's rep said the rapper is now in Los Angeles shooting the video for the G-Unit single "Stunt 101". (*source for this is http://www.mtv.com/)
