GREENPOINT, Brooklyn — Shots were fired near the set of a music video in Brooklyn that featured rappers 50 Cent and Tekashi 6ix9ine, police sources said Wednesday.

The shooting happened near the Greenpoint waterfront on Noble Street at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to police.

Rappers 50 Cent and Tekashi 6ix9ine were filming a music video on Noble Street, about a block away from where the shots were fired, police sources said.

Sources said they do not believe the rappers were targeted.

No one was injured in the shooting and police said no arrests have been made.

The rappers have been working together for months, and Tekashi 6ix9ine has appeared in several Instagram posts alongside the older artist.

Tekashi, born Daniel Hernandez, made news several times last month.

In the span of weeks, he claimed to have been pistol-whipped and robbed in Brooklyn and was arrested in New York on a Texas warrant alleging he choked a teenage boy. Also in July, charges against him were lowered after he was accused of assaulting an NYPD lieutenant.
