Former Terror Squad rapper Remy Ma, born Reminisce Smith, has plead not guilty to attempted murder and other charges stemming from a shooting in Manhattan early Saturday (June 14), Billboard.com reports. The shooting, which took place in Manhattan's Meatpacking District, left a woman, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, 23, with a gunshot wound to her lower torso. Following the shooting, just blocks away, police discovered Remy Ma's SUV abandoned after a single-car crash. Subsequently, a warrant was issued for the rapper's arrest, and Remy Ma turned herself in Saturday night and was then charged with attempted murder, assault, and weapon possession. Remy Ma was released on $250,000 bail.

Remy Ma and her entourage were reportedly eating at the Pizza Bar early Saturday morning (June 14), and Sasha Tcherekoff, the restaurant's owner, claims security videotape shows no signs of a fight or conflict before their exit. "The police have indicated to us that the altercation happened a block away," the owner said. "The security tapes determined there was no physical or verbal altercation while they were in the Pizza Bar."
