A man was shot to death early this morning (Feb. 5) near a video shoot for rapper Busta Rhymes in the Greepoint section of Brooklyn, N.Y. According to reports, the victim was a 29-year-old male who worked as a bodyguard at Kiss the Cactus Productions, where the video for Rhymes' "Touch It (The Remix)" was being filmed.

Police said 14 shots were fired from an AK-47 assault rifle outside the studio. Rhymes was not injured and at deadline it is unclear whether the incident had any connection to the artist. Surveillance tapes are being analyzed for evidence.

As previously reported, the artist's new album, "The Big Bang," is due April 2 via Aftermarth/Interscope. It features guest appearances by Eminem, Stevie Wonder, the late Rick James and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard, as well as production from Dr. Dre, Timbaland, the Neptunes and Scott Storch, among others.
