Singer Ann Marie was arrested last Wednesday in connection to a shooting that sent one man to the hospital.
Police responded to a call at the InterContinental Buckhead Hotel outside of Atlanta on December 1, where they discovered the R&B singer and a 24-year-old man, identified as Jonathan Wright, suffering from a bullet wound in the center of his forehead and an exit wound near his left temple. CBS 46 reported that despite losing a lot of blood, Wright was somewhat responsive and able to answer questions when officers arrived on the scene, but was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital where he remains in critical condition.
Responding officers reported that Ann Marie was screaming hysterically and asking if Wright was alive and would be okay; she eventually had to be removed from the hotel room, according to CBS 46. The singer reportedly told officers at the scene that “a gun fell off a table in the hotel room, which caused the gun to go off, hitting the victim,” whom she later identified as a childhood friend visiting from Chicago. According to TMZ, police also reported finding two shell casings inside the hotel room and two projectiles, as well as one bullet hole found in the door jam and another in a cabinet.
Ann Marie is perhaps best known for her 2018 hit “Secret,” which, in 2019, spent four weeks on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart, peaking at #22. She was arrested on December 2 and booked at Fulton County Jail for possession of a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
