Green was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene, according to the NYPD.

Two of the injured victims were treated for wounds to the neck, and the third suffered a gunshot to the elbow, according to prosecutors.

He has been charged with second-degree murder, three counts of second-degree attempted murder and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon, Brown said.

Green, a Jamaica resident, was a rapper who also went by the name Mazaradi Fox,, according to the district attorney. He had formerly been associated with 50 Cent’s G-Unit and had reportedly been a friend of the rapper.
