ABC News has reported that earlier today, four people were shot in the Springfield Gardens neighborhood in Queens, New York. Of the four, one was killed. According to the New York Daily News, the man slain was former 50 Cent affiliate Mazaradi Fox.

Fox had been released from prison weeks earlier, on December 20, after having served two years for attempted assault.

From the Daily News:

Mazaradi Fox, 42, whose real name is Jamal Green, was killed at the corner of Farmers Blvd. and 133rd Ave. at about 4:10 p.m. when the shooter rolled up to a white SUV and opened fire.
Police sources said Fox stumbled out of the SUV and collapsed in a nearby driveway.
Three other people in the SUV were wounded, including a 22-year-old man who was hit in the neck and shoulder and was in critical condition, police said. A second 22-year-old man was wounded in the arm, and the fourth victim, a woman in her 20s, suffered a graze wound to the neck, police said.
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, sources said. Relatives of the murdered girl considered Fox D’aja’s stepfather.
