[From Daily News] A Busta Rhymes video shoot ended with a hail of gunfire that killed the rapper’s bodyguard in Brooklyn early yesterday, feet from some of the biggest names in hip hop – including 50 Cent, DMX and Mary J. Blige, police sources said.
At least a dozen bullets flew after burly bodyguard Israel Ramirez got into a scuffle during the shoot in a Greenpoint film studio that also drew Missy Elliott and Lloyd Banks, a member of 50 Cent’s G-Unit. Cops were investigating whether anyone involved in the bloodshed – and the dispute that sparked it – was a member of any of the big-name rappers’ entourages, sources said last night.
Shortly before the gunfire erupted at 12:25 a.m., video crew members tried to keep the noise level under control as they shooed extras and hangers-on out of the building. That spurred one enraged self-proclaimed ex-con to shout, “Who the f–k are you to tell me to be quiet? I’m on .parole, mother—–r!
“You don’t tell me to shut up,” added the man, who sported a G-Unit jacket, witnesses said.
Moments later, as people were pouring outside, Ramirez got into a fight – sparking a barrage of bullets. [read the rest]
