Report: Bobby Shmurda Avoids Charges in Brooklyn Gun Case

Rapper's lawyer also says jail assault claim is "bulls**t."

Published January 24, 2015

It's been a (relatively) good week for Bobby Shmurda. The Brooklyn district attorney's office announced that one of the big charges levied against Shmurda, real name Ackquille Pollard, has been dropped. 

“[The] Brooklyn D.A. office announced that the gun case in Brooklyn will be dismissed in about two weeks,” Shmurda's attorney Howard Greenberg confirmed. According to court papers, Shmurda allegedly fired a gun toward a crowd of people outside a barber shop.

There was also another incident in which he was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and criminally using drug paraphernalia after police seized two loaded firearms and narcotics paraphernalia inside a Brooklyn residence.  

As for what this means for Bobby and his upcoming Jan. 29 trial date, Greenberg stated, “Brooklyn is done and now it’s on to Manhattan, where we need to teach these adversaries a lesson.”

In other Shmurda news, it's now obvious that the rapper was not critically injured or killed in a reported jailhouse brawl. “Bulls**t,” Greenberg told REVOLT about the circulating rumor. “Saw him yesterday (Jan. 20) in court. He looked fantastic.”
