Charges downgraded for Brooklyn man accused in Glen Cove Mansion shooting
Charges have been downgraded for a Brooklyn man accused in a shooting at the Glen Cove Mansion.
Remy Marshall, 27, is no longer facing attempted murder charges. The Brooklyn-based rapper performs under the stage name Fetty Luciano.
Prosecutors say Marshall got into an altercation at a pool party sponsored by a Queens gentlemen's club and left but then returned with a gun. They say he pistol-whipped a partygoer in the lobby of the hotel and a shot was fired.
Officials say the bullet hit three different people who were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Marshall's attorney, Javier Solano, says his client wasn't the one who fired the gun.
"He was supposed to go to the event, but he didn't go to the event," Solano says.
Solano says identifying his client was actually at the mansion with a gun that day will be a tall order at trial since he says many people had been drinking and it was chaotic.
Nicholas Mauro, of the Nassau County District Attorney's Office, says they have witnesses from the event and video from the Glen Cove Mansion, which establishes what they believe to be the charge in the case.
Marshall is still facing a nine-count indictment with the top charge being criminal possession of a weapon possession.
If found guilty of the top charge, Marshall could face up to 15 years in prison.
He was released on $200,000 bail.
The Glen Cove Manion's liquor license was temporarily revoked following the party but has since been reinstated.
