Fat Joe Squad Member Charged with Attempted Murder

7/15/2007 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Remy MaRemy Ma -- a member of Fat Joe's Terror Squad -- turned herself in yesterday for attempted murder. Ma, who was nominated for a Grammy with Fat Joe in 2004 for his the hit, "Lean Back," allegedly shot friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph twice in the abdomen at close range on Friday night, reports the Daily News.

The incident seems to have arisen over missing money. Ma was out celebrating a friend's birthday with longtime pal Barnes-Joseph, when she noticed cash missing from her wallet. Cops believe Ma accused Barnes-Joseph of taking the cash and then shot her in revenge.

Immediately after the shooting, Ma fled the scene by car, but crashed into another auto only a few blocks away from the shooting. She then jumped out of her car and took a taxi.

A few hours later Ma turned herself in to police, accompanied by her lawyer. She's being charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.


UPDATE:

Below is a sketch of Ma from her arraignment.

Damn, you're out celebrating a b-day party and just happen to have a gun on you or nearby you just in the event a friend is suspected of stealing money from you?

I would think most people when faced with the same dilemna would either have bopped the friend a good one if their answers to the theft werent sufficient or have called the Police.

Is this what is meant in Thug Life by "keeping it real"?.....shoot first when a friend might be suspected of a b-day card money theft?

No wonder there is such outrage over this lifestyle, music lyrics and its projected way of life.

S.A.    

Why is it that all racists precede their comments by saying, "I'm not a racist, but..."? Is there some handbook you all are reading from somewhere?

I say lock her ass up...That's what hiring security is for..People think its a badge of honor in the rap game to get locked up over some dumb crap involving a shooting..Instead of buying that luxury SUV with your money..Invest it & hire some security...I'm tired of all you dumb ass rappers who do nothing but talk of all your Prada, Gucci etc and do nothing with your loot..You add nothing to the rap game..Your music maybe hot for 2-3 months and then what?...Bring back the Golden Age Of Hip Hop when rap used to be about something!!!!!!!

Remy Ma is NOT a part of Fat Joe's Terror Squad. TMZ, get your facts straight. You're a little late on her affiliation status with TS.

I never heard of her. But, she most definately has made a huge mistake.
Someone stealing your money isn't a reason to shoot them. She should have reported it to the police, instead of taking matters into her own hands. I would never risk my freedom for any amount of money... I guess she wasn't thinking clearly that night.
