BANG BANG: Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooter Sentenced To 10 Years

    Damn Homie…..
    A 25-year-old tour manager pleaded guilty Friday to firing shots at rapper Lil Wayne’s tour buses as they traveled on I-285 in April.

    Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, also known as Peewee Roscoe, pleaded guilty to six charges and was sentenced to 20 years, including 10 to serve in prison, according to the Cobb County District Attorney’s Office. Winfrey, who previously worked for the rapper known as Young Thug, is eligible for parole.

    No one was injured on April 26 when multiple shots were fired at two buses traveling on I-285 near I-75, according to Atlanta and Cobb police. About a dozen people were on the buses around 3 a.m. after a performance at the Compound nightclub on Brady Avenue, police previously said. It was not known if Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, was aboard either of the buses.

    Winfrey was allegedly driving when he fired the shots from his white Camaro, causing more than $20,000 worth of damage to the buses, according to police. He allegedly fired the shots to gain “street cred,” police said.

    On May 21, Cobb police secured an arrest warrant for Winfrey, charging him with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and acts, criminal damage, possession of a firearm by a felon, criminal gang activity, reckless conduct and discharging a weapon near the street. Then in June, a grand jury indicted Winfrey on 27 counts.


    Friday morning, Winfrey pleaded guilty to six counts of violation of the street gang terrorism and prevention act as part of a plea deal, Cobb DA Vic Reynolds’ office said
    .
    “This defendant is a member of the Bloods street gang,” Chief ADA Don Geary told the court. “We can prove he was in the Camaro. Whether he was alone, we don’t know. At any rate, he is a party to these crimes.”
    Winfrey has been held at the Cobb jail since his arrest.
