Years ago, Julio Acevedo shot and killed the notorious Brooklyn thug 50 Cent. At 3:15 in the morning on February 17, Acevedo was stopped in Brooklyn while driving a different BMW. He was reportedly red-eyed, unsteady on his feet and slurring his words. Five hours later, his Breathalyzer reading was .13, almost double the legal limit.

The New York Post reports:
Hasidic community leaders called for Acevedo to be charged with murder.
The hit-and-run driver who killed a pregnant Williamsburg woman and her husband already had one murder under his belt — and was nabbed for drunken driving just two weeks before Sunday’s horrific crash, authorities said yesterday.
Police last night were hunting for Julio Acevedo, who did time for fatally shooting the original “50 Cent,” Brooklyn thug Kelvin Martin, the inspiration for rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s name.
Cops said Acevedo, 44, was behind the wheel of the speeding 2010 BMW that slammed into a livery cab carrying Nachman Glauber and his seven-months-pregnant wife, Raizel, to meet her doctor at a Brooklyn hospital at around 12:30 a.m. Sunday.
Acevedo was identified by at least one witness, a person who claimed to have helped the man out of the mangled BMW before he fled, according to sources.
Acevedo had allegedly been going 60-plus mph, more than double the speed limit.
Williamsburg photographer Shimon Gifter told The Post he saw Acevedo return to the scene. Gifter said he took the man’s picture, which cops confirmed was him.
“It was absolutely freezing, and this guy was wearing a sweater, smoking a cigarette. He looked very nervous,” Gifter said. “He just looked at the crash and went back the same way he came, up Kent Avenue. He just disappeared.”
Police believe that Acevedo ran to the home of a friend and then left the area, sources said.…
The Glaubers, both 21-year-old Hasidic Jews, died at separate hospitals. Raizel, known as “Raizy,” stayed alive long enough for doctors to deliver her baby by C-section at Bellevue Hospital. Nachman died of head injuries at Beth Israel Medical Center.
The newborn died yesterday morning — on what would have been his mom’s birthday.…
“The best thing for this coward is to charge him with triple homicide — and we are going to demand that,” Isaac Abraham, a Satmar hasid and sometimes politician told the Post.
Acevedo has a long criminal history that includes time in Attica prison for Martin’s 1987 murder, two drug possession arrests, robbery arrests, and an arrest for reckless endangerment.
At 3:15 in the morning on February 17, Acevedo was stopped in Brooklyn while driving a different BMW. He was reportedly red-eyed, unsteady on his feet and slurring his words.
Five hours later, his Breathalyzer reading was .13, almost double the legal limit.
Acevedo claimed he was coming from a baby shower at the Bed-Stuy neighborhood club Sugar Hill and had only two beers.
