Busta Rhymes' bodyguard killed
A video shoot featuring Missy Elliott, Lloyd Banks and others turned tragic when a bodyguard for Busta Rhymes was killed. Israel Ramirez was killed by a single shot to the chest outside a building where the remix video for Busta's "Touch It" was being filmed on the ninth floor. Investigators were still trying to determine early Monday what led to the violence. The Associated Press reported that shortly before the shooting, a man connected to 50 Cent's G-Unit allegedly had an outburst at the studio. About 500 people were gathered for the video, but it was unclear how many of the celebrities and crew were outside the building when the shots were fired.
