Remy Ma Pleads Not Guilty To Attempted Murder Charge
Remy Ma is being held on Rikers Island, as a judge sided with prosecutors bail request of $250,000.
Her attorney Scott Leemon said that a judge recently approved Remy Ma's bond and she is expected to be released from custody within a few hours.
Police received a 911 call of a victim being shot around 4:00 am in the Meatpacking district in downtown Manhattan.
Officials claim that Remy Ma shot 23-year-old Makeda Barnes-Joseph twice in the torso, after the two argued in front of The Pizza Bar, over $2,000 that had allegedly been stolen from Remy Ma.
The rapper and several unidentified males fled in her Blue Cadillac Escalade, but all of the occupants fled on foot, after the SUV crashed into a parked car a few blocks away.
Barnes-Joseph, labeled as a childhood friend of Remy Ma's, is in Saint Vincent's Hospital recuperating from two gunshot wounds that narrowly missed her uterus, kidneys and other vital organs.
All occupants in Remy Ma's Escalade were eventually apprehended and questioned, while Remy Ma turned herself in last night (July 14) around 8:00 PM.
Barnes-Joseph is in Saint Vincent's Hospital and is in stable condition.
Remy Ma has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder, possession of a weapon and assault.
She is due back in court on August 14.
