Rapper Remy Ma's sister arrested for attempted murder
Remy Ma's sister was arrested by Raleigh Police after she shot a woman and then fired shots into a car that had three women in it.
The Grammy-nominated rapper, Remy Ma's sister - Remeesha Alesia Blount, 27 - was reported to have been arrested last week, on February 16, after a shooting in the parking lot of a bar that took place in Raleigh, North Carolina.
According to a report by the News Observer, the rapper's sister shot Raleigh native D’ericka Nicole Godley in the parking lot of the End Zone Lounge on New Bern Avenue and also fired at a car that contained three other women, who escaped unharmed.
However, the police reported that while trying to escape from Blount, they accidentally hit the injured woman with their car. As of February 22, Godley, who was taken to WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh, is reportedly in fair condition.
The police arrested Blount the same night of the shooting at an apartment complex in Raleigh and charged her with three counts of assault with the weapon with intent to kill, intent to kill inflicting serious injury, discharging a firearm in the city, and shooting into an occupied vehicle.
This isn't Blount's first run-in with the police. Since 2009 she has had charges pending against her at the Raleigh Police Department, including assault by pointing a gun, shooting a gun inside city limits, and assault with a deadly weapon. Blount is being held without bail after a magistrate decided that she was a danger to the community and unlikely to keep a court date.
Blount isn't the first member of her family with a violent record. Her sister, Remy Ma, was imprisoned for six years in 2006 for intentional assault after she shot a member of her entourage whom she accused of going through her purse and taking out $3,000.
Remy Ma reportedly had been confident that she wouldn't be convicted of the shooting, causing her to break down as she was escorted away by officers. She hasn't acknowledged the news of her sister's arrest yet.
