A New York City rapper was ordered held on $200,000 cash bond at his arraignment Friday in connection with a July 10 shooting at a Glen Cove hotel that injured three people.
Remy Marshall, 26, was arrested Thursday and with charged with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment. His lawyer, Manhattan-based Javier Solano, said he entered a not guilty plea at his arraignment in a Nassau First District courtroom in Hempstead.
"We're fighting this, that's for sure," Solano said in an interview outside the courtroom.
Police on Thursday said Marshall is a hip-hop artist who performs under the name Fetty Luciano. Glen Cove police earlier in the week said Marshall was from Brooklyn but charging papers listed him at a Queens address.
During his arraignment Friday, a county prosecutor who had asked that Marshall be remanded, described him as a “gang member” who had been caught on camera at the one-time Gold Coast estate.
“Video evidence shows the defendant leaving that scene … and callously putting that gun away in his pocket,” the prosecutor said.
Solano said his client was no flight risk but a lifelong New Yorker with community ties and several musical appearances scheduled in the coming week who had voluntarily surrendered to police.
Solano said there was no video of the actual shooting and that the scene inside the Mansion — authorities have said there were 150 to 200 party attendees, with 10 to 12 people fighting — was so “chaotic” that determining what actually happened would be difficult.
Marshall said little during the arraignment apart from “Yes, ma’am” when Judge Lisa Petrocelli asked him if he understood the terms of the bail agreement, which calls for him to surrender any firearms in his possession.
He was accompanied by his girlfriend and his father.
Marshall turned himself in Thursday morning at the Glen Cove police station. Solano said in an interview after the arraignment that his client had spent the last roughly 10 days “waiting for me to surrender him.”
Three people were shot and wounded earlier this month at a hip-hop-themed pool party in early July.
Police have said the shooting occurred as a security guard tried to escort someone from the party.
A 2018 article on the Billboard website described Marshall as a “rising star” from East Flatbush who had performed at venues including the Barclays Center.
That story said he was a member of the GS9 “crew” that included other popular performers.
A 2014 release from the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor for the City of New York described GS9, or “G Stone Crips,” as a Brooklyn-based street gang and announced the arrest of numerous members, including Marshall.
Marshall was charged with conspiracy, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the release. It was not immediately known what the disposition of those charges were.
According to state inmate records, Marshall was incarcerated in 2016 and released on parole in 2017.
