Remy Ma pleaded not guilty Sunday July 15th in the shooting of a woman in a trendy Manhattan neighborhood.
Remy Ma is clean. She's free of charge. The Grammy-nominated rapper was pleaded not guilty Sunday July 15th to attempted murder and other counts in the shooting of a woman in a trendy Manhattan neighborhood, after being arrested on Saturday night July 14th following a gunshot.
Ma surrendered to authority on Saturday night for allegedly shooting and seriously wounding a childhood acquaintance during a dispute outside of a Manhattan bar early morning in the day. She was then held on Rikers Island, charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon. A judge granted the prosecution's request for bail to be set at $250,000.
Police found a woman, identified as Makeda Barnes-Joseph, 23, with a gunshot wound to her lower torso in the hip Meatpacking District after they received a 911 call. Officials claim that Remy Ma shot the victim twice in the torso, after they argued in front of The Pizza Bar, over $2,000 that had allegedly been stolen from the star.
Shortly after the gunshot, Remy Ma and her entourage fled in her Blue Cadillac Escalade, but then fled on foot, after the SUV crashed into a parked car a few blocks away. Barnes-Joseph is in Saint Vincent's Hospital recuperating from two gunshot wounds that narrowly missed her uterus, kidneys and other vital organs.
Remy Ma is due back in court on August 14th.
