Lil Cease, Banger Charged With Attempted Murder


Cease, Banger and Suif Jackson, a bodyguard

for group, Junior M.A.F.I.A. were arrested Friday and

charged in connection with a shooting outside of a deli,

according to police. Jackson, 31, was arrested just

after midnight Friday morning as he was getting out

of a car witnesses had placed at the scene of the crime

according to police spokesman Detective Eugene Canapi.

Lil Cease,

whose real name is James Lloyd and Banger whose real

name is Antoine Spain, were later arrested at La Guardia

Airport, police said.

All three

men were charged with attempted murder, reckless endangerment

and criminal possession of a weapon. Two 9 mm handguns

found in a hidden compartment in the car were registered

to rapper ``Lil' Kim,'' who also is a member of the

``Junior M.A.F.I.A,'' police said.

An argument

with 21 year old Michael Goody, 21, is what sparked

the shooting. Police arrived on the scene after receiving

several 911 calls saying that three men had fired shots

out of the car and driven off.

Goody was

hit once in the right leg and was taken to Brooklyn

Hospital where he was listed in stable condition, police


In March,

Lil Cease was busted after cops allegedly found a small

amount of marijuana in the Jaguar he was driving on

151st St. in Manhattan. Police took the time to question

him and another member of the Junior M.A.F.I.A. about

a shooting in February outside of New York's Hot 97.

In that case, the Judge djourned the case with contemplation

of dismissal, if he stayed out of trouble, those charges

would have been dropped.
