Rapper P-Dice freed on $250,000 bail

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) -- A rap artist charged in a shooting that injured a 7-year-old boy earlier this year has been freed after posting $250,000 bail.

Justin Pope, known professionally as P-Dice, was part of Fetty Wap's Remy Boyz recording group until they parted ways last October.

Pope is charged with attempted murder and weapons offenses stemming from the February shooting in Paterson.

Passaic County authorities have said Pope allegedly fired a shot that went through an apartment and hit the boy in the shoulder. The child has since recovered from his wounds.

Authorities have said there's no indication the shooter targeted anyone in the apartment.

Pope was seen in a video for Fetty Wap's "679" song. He was arraigned on the charges in April and has pleaded not guilty.
