They threatened to kill him...
TMZ reports that hip-hop producer Scott Storch (worked with Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Snoop Lion and Pink) was robbed outside of a New York hotel today at gunpoint. He claims the people responsible threatened to kill him.
Storch is in town for the MTV Video Music Awards and filed a police report in New York City. He claims that while he was leaving the New York Palace hotel on Madison Avenue, he was stopped by two men with guns while he was inside an SUV. The men told him: "Give us all your jewelry and cash or you're dead."
Storch handed them a briefcase that contained between four and five thousand in cash, along with several pieces of jewelry. The men also demanded the driver of the SUV give them the keys so they couldn't escape, and the driver did as he was told. The men ran away without firing their guns. Storch tried to chase them to see where they were going, but lost them. That's when he went to the nearby police station and filed the report.
