Detectives in New
York are probing whether or not a shooting last week in Queens, New York involving
alleged members of 50 Cent’s G-Unit crew, is connected to the rap industry.
The New York Daily News
reported that three men were shot in Jamaica, Queens on Thursday (May 19), as
they sat in a black Chevy Suburban outside of Club Adventura.
Jesse Brown, 21, was shot
three times – in the chest, left arm and buttocks – while Nicholas
Sloane, 21, was shot in the thigh.
A third man in the SUV,
Leroy Pressley, 24, rushed the wounded men to Jamaica Hospital. The two men
are in stable condition.
Pressley was apprehended
90 minutes after the shooting. Authorities, who had the men under surveillance
prior to the shooting, recovered thirteen 9MM shells from the scene.
Police also matched a glove
in Pressley’s pocket to one found at the scene of the shooting.
Reports said none
of the men are cooperating with authorities and as of press time, it was not
known who Pressely was trading fire with, despite the presence of police.
