NYC: NYPD commander being investigated for threatening rapper 50 Cent’s life — police sources

He wanted his cops to “Get the strap” — and take out 50 Cent.

A Brooklyn precinct commander is being investigated by the NYPD for allegedly threatening the celebrity’s life — telling his officers at a roll call to “shoot him on sight,” the Daily News has learned.

Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez, the commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, allegedly made the threat last June 7, when the actor and “In Da Club” rapper was expected to attend an NYPD sanctioned boxing match in the Bronx.

During a roll call inside the 72nd Precinct stationhouse, Gonzalez told his officers if they saw 50 Cent at the boxing match, known as a smoker, they should “shoot him on sight,” a source with knowledge of the case said.

“The inspector just said that at roll call,” the source said. “I’m like WTF.”

No one recorded the incident, and Gonzalez tried to pass off the bizarre order as a joke.

But the matter made its way to police headquarters, which launched a probe.

“The incident is under internal review,” a department spokesman said.

A source said the Internal Affairs Bureau’s Group 1 — which handles police corruption cases for captains and above — is investigating.
