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.

Finally exposed - shes a wierdo    

Here we go again. Another dumbass rapper (or part of their "entourage"; what a joke) arrested for doing something violent. What's with the rap community? Can't go a day without trying to kill someone? You bozos can't even have an awards show without a full blown brawl breaking out...

Obviously what she did make no sense - whether $6 or $2000 - especially since she has a career and a future - But we don't know the whole story here, perhaps this young lady (and I am not excusing her) had too much to drink or was under some other influence - does it seem like she would be this paranoid over money and flip out to this extent, stone cold sober? IDK, I'm just saying... And I agree with real deal and s a - these racist comments are not necessary and serve no purpose but to show the true ignorance of the person behind them.

Would it be fair to say, that if everyone confessed to being a racist,
the problem would end ??

If she goes down below on Fat Joe, prison should be a piece of cake, and a welcome break.

They should put her under the jail. Perhaps it will send a strong message to all of these
wannabe thugs.
