Fat Joe Sought as Possible Witness to Miami Shooting

fat_joe.jpgMiami Beach police are looking to question Fat Joe as a possible witness to a shooting that left two men dead over the Memorial Day weekend. According to the Miami Herald, Joe may have been present during an altercation that took place just before 6 .a.m. on Monday morning (May 28) in front of David’s Cafe II at 1654 Meridian Ave. Police say that a group of men in a black Cadillac Escalade, got into a verbal confrontation with another man in front of the restaurant.

The argument soon turned physical and 24-year old Jermaine ”Wufgang” Chamberline pulled out a gun and fired four times at the group. Lessli Paz, 25 and Joey Navarro, 26 were both hit and died of their wounds. Chamberline was arrested a short time later near the scene. Investigators have reason to believe that Fat Joe may have been riding in the black Escalade with the group. Miami Beach police spokesman Sgt. Robert Hernandez, stated that Joe is only being sought as a possible witness.

Aimee Morris, a spokesperson for the rapper, told the Herald that she had not spoken to Joe and was unable to comment. Miami’s South Beach has become a popular Memorial Day weekend destination for Hip-Hop fans over the past few years and the large crowds have prompted an increased law enforcement presence. Civil rights groups have accused Miami police of racially profiling visitors during the holiday festivities. Police confiscated 60 guns this year and arrests in the area numbered at around 800, down from over 1000 in 2006.

    There must be a conspiracy of hired young black gov’t agents shooting down all the brothers in america. They are nothing but imposters, double agents, infiltrators and wannabe gangstas who are killing our youth in the name of Hip Hop. They have it twisted and have forever disrupted the message of what Hip Hop music is really all about. Don’t let words or emotions or petty beef make you kill someone, bredren. It is not even worth it, and you would regret it. Uncle sams black clowns are killing out I and I. Let’s put an end to it before they even know what hit them. Lick down the bumbaclot interlopers before they kill all the good brothers off!! FIYAH!! Joey Crack is still the DON in Miami and New York. He’s that yellow nigga.

    ….How the fuck would he be snitchin? Ya’ll dont really know the meaning of snitching. first of all police already got the dude that did the shooting( at least he admitted to do the shooting). They want Fat Joe to cooperate with them on what went down, that aint snitchin thats being a witness/coop with poppo and he’s not gonna get in trouble either way.

    ^^^^^I would say thats still snitching if he tells poppos that he saw exactly what happened…Even if they have the dude that did the blastin, if i saw it i wouldn’t say shit…
