'Puffy' Protégé Faces Rap

11/16/1998 at 12:00 AM EST



A protégé of Sean "Puffy" Combs was formally indicted Wednesday on an attempted murder charge in connection with the Dec. 27 nightclub shooting that is also involving "Puffy" and Jennifer Lopez. Jamal "Shyne" Barrow, 21, was part of the rap mogul's entourage and allegedly wounded three people at Club NY after a dispute, authorities said. (Combs is charged with illegal possession of a gun. Prosecutors declined to charge his girlfriend, Lopez, who was with Combs that night.) Besides attempted murder, Barrow is charged with assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon. The attempted murder charge is punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
