P-Dice, a rapper formerly associated with Fetty Wap's Remy Boyz crew, has been arrested in connection to a late February shooting in which a seven-year-old boy was wounded by a stray bullet, the Patterson Press is reporting. The rapper, whose real name is Justin Pope, has been charged with attempted murder, weapons offenses and possession of a defaced firearm.

While authorities have said that there is no indication that Pope was trying to shoot anyone within the residence, and have yet to reveal the evidence that led to his arrest, the boy's family has expressed a sense of satisfaction that an arrest has been made. “I’m so excited,” Diana Irizarri, mother to the injured boy, said. “My whole family is happy about this. I give props to the Paterson Police Department. They did their job.” Irizarri moved her family away from Rosa Parks Boulevard, where the shooting took place and a street with a history of gun violence, shortly after the incident.

Though P-Dice can be seen in Fetty Wap's "679" video, the rapper has marginalized Dice's role within the crew, saying that his hit songs were penned and recorded without his influence. P-Dice spoke to VladTV back in December about being on the receiving end of a pistol whip because he disrespected Fetty.
