Atlanta, GA – Burgeoning R&B artist Ann Marie was reportedly arrested in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday (December 1) for allegedly shooting a man. According to The Shade Room, Atlanta police officials have identified the victim as a 24-year-old male believed to be romantically involved with the singer.
Officers responded to a call from an Atlanta hotel around 6:25 p.m. local time and discovered a man laying on the floor with a gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to Grady Hospital “conscious and breathing” but required immediate medical assistance.

When detectives arrived at the scene, they spoke to Ann Marie who claimed the gun fell off the table, discharged and hit him in the head. Needless to say, her story has raised suspicion regarding her involvement in the incident.
The court of public opinion (read: Twitter) has already determined Ann Marie shot the man because he was allegedly cheating on her even though she supposedly has another boyfriend. The shooting immediately brought up the highly publicized Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez incident that went down in July.
There are several people calling out the perceived hypocrisy of the situation with one Twitter user writing, “So when Tory shot Meg in the foot y’all was like cancel him, well allegedly Ann Marie shot her boyfriend in the head and y’all is over here reasoning with insanity Rolling on the floor laughing TF . Nobody deserves to get shot & these females trying to justify why Ann Marie did what she did is PATHETIC.”
Fulton County Records state Ann Marie (real name Joann Marie) was charged with two felonies — aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm.
Ann Marie has been arrested on two other occasions. Other charges include simple battery stemming from an incident last month and driving without a valid license, speeding and failure to have a license in 2018.
