Police Suspect Murder of 50 Cent Associate Mazaradi Fox To Be Gang Related
We told you about the death of a longtime friend of 50 Cent and G-Unit affiliate Mazaradi Fox on Friday night. Police have begun putting together the pieces of the puzzle behind the shooting and it looks to be gang-related. Check out the details below…
A police source indicated the Fox slaying was possibly gang-related. Five years ago, Fox pumped two .25-caliber bullets into Queens gangbanger Rashawn Carter, authorities said. The victim survived the shooting. Charged with attempted murder, Fox was later convicted of attempted assault and sent to prison. In a bizarre twist, Carter was then executed in a brazen February 2010 street hit witnessed by the local precinct commander. “What a stroke of luck,” one police source dryly observed. “The person you were trying to kill gets killed by someone else.”
Fox’s rap sheet dates to the late ’80s and includes arrests for drugs and weapons, according to parole board records.
A woman answering the door Saturday at Fox’s Queens home said they were mourning his violent loss. “We miss him,” she said. “We love him.”
The girlfriend, who was driving, suffered a graze wound to the neck, while a 21-year-old male passenger was critically injured with bullet wounds to the neck and shoulder.
There was no update Saturday on his condition. A second man, age 22, was wounded in the arm. Fox — whose real name is Jamal Green — stumbled from the vehicle and collapsed in a nearby driveway.
Carter, 29, was killed with a single shot to the head on Feb. 22, 2010, after three cars ro
lled up outside a home in Jamaica, cops said. A second man was shot in the chest but lived.
The head of the nearby 103rd Precinct saw the killing and made an arrest in the case. Five guns were recovered. – Via DailyNews
