50 Cent responds to alleged shooting threat from NYPD commander

BROOKLYN, New York -- Rapper 50 Cent is taking aim at a New York City police commander who, he claims, urged his officers to shoot him.

According to a report in the Daily News, the deputy inspector made the threatening remarks last June, when 50 Cent was scheduled to attend an NYPD-sanctioned boxing match in the Bronx.

Police say "the matter is under internal review."

50 Cent tweeted on Sunday saying, "This guy, Emanuel Gonzales is a dirty cop abusing his power. The sad part is this man still has a badge and a gun."
