NY (Top40 Charts) - Junior M.A.F.I.A. members Lil' Cease and Larceny, along with a bodyguard, have been charged with attempted murder following a shooting outside a New York deli on Friday (Aug. 10), according to a spokesperson for the King's County District Attorney's office.

Lil' Cease (real name James Lloyd) and Larceny (real name Antoine Spain) were arrested at La Guardia Airport in Queens, N.Y., following the arrest of Suif Jackson, a bodyguard for the group. Jackson was seen exiting a Lincoln Navigator that was spotted at a shooting early Friday morning outside a Brooklyn, N.Y., deli, according to witnesses. The vehicle was registered to Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Lil' Kim.

The shooting victim, Michael Goody, was wounded in his right leg and taken to Brooklyn Hospital where he remains in stable condition. Goody was allegedly arguing in the deli with Spain, Lloyd, and Jackson prior to the shooting. Shortly afterward, the three men allegedly fired off several shots and sped off.

All three men were charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon (two 9 mm handguns were found in the vehicle), and attempted criminal possession of a weapon. The trio will next appear in Brooklyn Criminal Court on Aug. 29 to face the charges.

The incident could re-open Lloyd's recent possession of marijuana charges in Manhattan (allstar, May 31), which had been adjourned with contemplation of dismissal if the rapper stayed out of trouble. Spain, who was arrested at the same incident and charged with possession of a weapon in the second and third degree, is due in Manhattan Criminal Court on Aug. 21 to continue facing those charges.
