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.

TMZ please hire a member onto your staff that has knowledge of the Urban Music Culture (hip-hop and R&B Celebrities). You continue to cover the stars but put wrong information. If you got it right it would make for a better story. I want to inform you that Remy Ma is no longer with the Terror Squad - she has removed herself from the clique which includes Fat Joe and has also has a song that was on the internet a month ago where she threatens to shoot them.

Get real Cuz & Cuzetts.
Rules of the Game 101
1.) All money ain't good money.
2.) Do the Crime do the Time.
3.) Do your own dirt and you don't have to worry about anyone else knowing (Snitching).
4.) Most suckers can't keep there mouth shut, so the end up snitching on themselves.
5.) Pimps don't turn down any money. If they cant find a victim to do the sex act they will do it themselves to get the money. Be careful about calling yourself a Pimp.
6.) If you Lie, you will steal, if you steal you will Murder.
7.) Cowards can be dangerous, you might not be given a chance if you show your hand.
8.) There is no Honor amoungst Thives.
9.) Don't be a another Statistic.
It looks like the Girl tore her draws, committed a cowardly act shooting an unarmed girl over nothing. If she was serious about shooting her she would have called the undertaker and called the 6:00 o-clock news and told them she had to cap another Buster who got in her way. She ran like a coward instead and got her lawyer. What happened to going out in a Blaze of Glory?
There is no shuch a thing as a make believe ganster. All the real so called ganster are either doing triple life, on death row or in the cemetary. Now that may be make believe life, but it is real death.
The name of the game if you can't be good be carefull. The reality of the game is "the only reward for good is good".

I am reading peoples comments and the fact escapes people that this has nothing to do with race...Last I checked, this damn "GANGSTA", "GHETTO", "THUG' Crap permeates all races!!!! It's that crap rap music that glorifies murders, and drugs, and straight up violence towards everyone.... that is the PROBLEM!! I wish I had a gun to shoot out the speakers of every non-caring, selfish human being who "bumps" his way through life,(and through my neighborhood), wearing them damn baggy pants, and popped up ELMER FUDD hats, un-tied shoes, looking like a bunch of gangsters!!, (OR IN MY BOOK, STRAIGHT UP MENTALLY CHALLENGED!!) That is the problem...it has nothing to do with black people...cause last I checked...there are white people and hispanics, and chinese, and all races emulating the bad behavior these DISGUSTING, LO-LIFE, NO-TALENT RAPPERS PROMOTE...As for the rockers that over-dose on drugs as the one woman commented...they OVERDOSE...That is something you do to yourself...UNLIKE WHAT THE THUG COMMUNITY DOES...IT TERRORIZES EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!

You are a racist and your are stupid. 99% of blacks. Have you taken a poll you ignaramus? It's really sad that you don't want your kids to be associated with us. You are only doing them a disservice, because they will have to go to school with black people or at least work with black people at some point in there life. You are just using this example of poor behavior by a black person to justify your racism, but it doesn't justify it. Just admit that you are a racist, no one can see you. Tell the truth to yourself. You're a sad person, and I'm sad for you.
