Mazaradi Fox, 42, real name Jamal Green, was killed at Farmers Blvd. and 134th Ave. in Jamaica Queens, New York, on Friday (January 3), while sitting in a car. The shooting occurred at approximately 4:10 p.m. when a gunman in a black ski mask pulled up to a white SUV and unloaded multiple rounds into the vehicle which struck Fox and three other people, according to the New York Daily News.
The three other victims in the SUV were wounded, including a 21-year-old man who was hit in the neck and shoulder, police said. A second man, age 22, was wounded in the arm, and the fourth victim, a woman in her 20s — believed to be Fox’s daughter according to thisis50.com — suffered a graze wound to the neck, police said.
Paramedics rushed the survivors to Jamaica Hospital.
Fox, a native of Jamaica, Queens, got out of prison Dec. 20 after serving two years for an attempted assault. He was also convicted of attempted murder in 1998, according to court records.
Family friends said Fox helped raise D’Aja Robinson, a 14-year-old girl shot dead while riding on a city bus through Jamaica in May. Relatives of the murdered girl said they considered Fox to be D’Aja’s stepfather.
Fox and 50 Cent hadn’t talked in some time, but 50 Cent attended D’Aja’s funeral and paid for the horse and carriage that carried the teen’s casket.
“Saddened by the news of Mazaradi’s tragic passing my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends,” 50 wrote on Twitter after the news broke.
