Witness Claims He Saw Remy Cock .45 Handgun

South Bronx rapper Remy Ma’s assault trial continued in court today (March 12) in Manhattan, when the prosecution produced two witnesses who testified against her.

 

Remy Ma, 26, is accused of shooting Makeda Barnes-Joseph twice in the abdomen after leaving a Manhattan nightclub in July of 2007, shortly after the pair argued over $3,000 dollars that was missing from the rapper’s purse.

 

According to the Associated Press, a 21-year-old student and friend of shooting victim Makeda Barnes-Joseph named Oluwole Ajudun testified that he saw Remy Ma get out of a Cadillac Escalade with a .45 handgun.

 

Ajudun claimed he saw Remy Ma cock the .45 and later heard a gunshot. The man then claimed he saw Remy Ma leave Joseph’s car as did another witness, who testified she saw a flash and witnessed the rapper exit Joseph’s car moments after Joseph was shot twice in the abdomen.

 

Prosecutors claims Remy Ma then fled the scene after pillaging through Barnes-Joseph’s bag.

 

Remy Ma then crashed the Escalade into a parked car a few blocks away from the scene of the shooting.

 

Remy Ma surrendered to the authorites later in the day and was charged with first-degree assault.

 

Remy Ma also faces witness tampering charges, after two men, including the boyfriend of a witness, were assaulted at a club in the Bronx, allegedly by her boyfriend, rapper Papoose, and his associates.

 

Remy Ma, born Remy Smith, faces up to 25 years in prison if she is convicted of the charges.
