Police have identified Kevin Reed as the gunshot victim in the Monday night shooting outside Hot 97. And last night (March 1), 50 Cent cancelled a scheduled New York appearance in light the current hostile hip-hop climate.
Sources say Reed, a 24-year old man from Compton, CA, has told police he went to the station with The Game and his cohorts to confront 50 Cent.
Denied entry into the building, the men waited outside. Detective Camacho told SOHH.com, "A group of men were hanging around the building, but weren't allowed to enter. Another group of guys exited the building and a dispute started; multiple shots were fired and one man was struck in the leg."
Police believe it was a member of 50's entourage that fired the shot hitting Reed; who was later taken to St. Vincent Hospital. Meanwhile no arrests have been made and neither 50 Cent nor The Game have been charged in the shooting.
Later that night, someone fired shots at 50's managing company, Violator Management. Though no one was injured, investigators say the shooting may have been left as a message to the beefy rapper.
Last night, 50 Cent cancelled his appearance at a BET-sponsored fashion show at New York's famed Roseland Ballroom in light of the dangerous climate. There is no word yet on whether other appearances will be cancelled.
