C-Murder, who is accused of attempted murder for allegedly firing a gun outside a Baton Rouge, Louisiana, nightclub last week, was released on bail Saturday.
Baton Rouge authorities freed the rapper around 2 p.m. after he signed for $100,000 of a $250,000 bond and arranged for a bond company to cover the rest. He will be responsible for the $100,000 if he fails to appear at his initial court date, which will be set within two weeks, according to the district attorney's office.
C-Murder, who is Master P's brother, turned himself in to police on Friday to answer charges of attempted murder and illegal use of a weapon (see "C-Murder Turns Self In, Will Answer Attempted-Murder Charge"). He is accused of firing a gun outside Club Raggs just before midnight on Tuesday after owner Norman Sparrow and doorman Daryl Jackson refused to let him enter without first being searched.
