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.


Below is a sketch of Ma from her arraignment.

Don't know who this chick is but I do know the song "Lean Back". Damn, murder charges. wow. What happened to filing a police report. Too many ppl with access to guns. I bet the gun is not even registered and she has no permit. Guns are to protect in self defense, not because you have money missing. Do the crime serve the time. What a waste of life.

Remy Ma is no longer part of the Terror Squad. I'm sure Fat Joe does not want this horrible incident to be associated with his camp. She left the group to pursue solo interests.
