An NYPD Deputy Commander is reportedly under investigation for threatening the life of Rapper 50 Cent.
Brooklyn Precinct Commander Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez reportedly said at a roll call of officers: "Shoot him on site."
The commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, allegedly made the threat last June 7, when the actor and rapper was expected to attend an NYPD sanctioned boxing match in the Bronx.
A source revealed: "The inspector just said that at roll call, I'm like WTF."
The incident was not recorded and Gonzalez tried to pass it off as a joke, however, an official probe has now been launched.
"The incident is under internal review," a department spokesman said.
Gonzalez, who will be celebrating his 30th anniversary with the department later this year, remains on active duty.
The alleged threat came at a time Gonzalez had a dispute with 50 Cent whose real-name is Curtis Jackson.
A month before the roll-call incident Gonzalez filed an aggravated harassment complaint, claiming 50 Cent threatened him on Instagram.
He wrote: "Get the strap," a slang term for "get a gun." This was in reference to a dispute Gonzalez had with one of his friends who ran an NY club.
In the complaint he filed in the department, Gonzalez said several of 50 Cent's 18 million followers responded with their own threats against him.

They wrote: "F--k this commander" and "Blast this fool," leaving him "in fear of his safety."
The rapper took down his post and no charges were filed following Gonzalez's complaint.
Commenting on the latest development a rep for the rapper said: "Mr. Jackson takes this threat very seriously and is consulting with his legal counsel regarding his options going forward. He is concerned that he was not previously advised of this threat by the NYPD and even more concerned that Gonzalez continues to carry a badge and a gun."
