Ice-T grieves as producer pal Joseph 'Taheim' Bryan is shot multiple times in fatal New York ambush while sat in car
RAPPER Ice-T shared his heartbreak over the murder of his producer friend Joseph "Taheim" Bryan who was shot multiple times in New York.
Bryan, 50, was sitting in his new Mercedes-Benz on Thursday night when a gunman ambushed him and shot him four times in the torso before fleeing.
He was rushed to the nearby Mount Sinai Queens hospital where he was pronounced dead, authorities stated.
Taking to Twitter Ice-T shared a picture of himself with Bryan along with two other friends.
"MFs Killed my friend last night,” he wrote.
“I’m not in a good place behind this. Taheim was a GOOD dude making Positive moves.
"He wrote & we made the film EqualStandard together. He leaves a Wife & Daughter. Dirty MFs followed him home and Murdered him.”
Equal Standard is an indie film that was released in May which starred Ice-T.
One witness told the DailyMail.com that officers had to smash their way into the vehicle.
"They pulled the guy out and tried to resuscitate him until the ambulance arrived," the witness said.
"I heard a burst of gunfire at around 11 pm, very rapid and close by.
"I looked out my window and saw a car parked in the middle of the dead-end street to the side of my building."
Law enforcement told the New York Post that Bryan was killed around 11:15pm while parked outside Long Island City's luxury apartment complex Jackson Park.
The killer was reportedly dropped off around the corner of Jackson Avenue by a dark-colored Mazda, Deadline reported.
Bryan's murder is the second in Long Island City this year and the third homicide since 2020.
Late last night, Ice-T tweeted that "losing friends and family to the streets makes you cold."
"You can’t tell me shit about PTSD. How many of your friends have been Murdered? It changes you," the father-of-three wrote.
No arrests have been made.
