Yo Gotti the Label Exec Sentenced To 10 to 14 Years Of Charlotte Shooting

Howard "Keon" Wright is currently in pretrial detention in a county jail.

Charlotte, NC – Howard "Keon" Wright — Yo Gotti's road manager and vice president, Collective Music Group — has, reportedly, pleaded guilty to several charges stemming from a 2016 shooting in Charlotte, North Carolina during CIAA weekend. As a result, a judge has sentenced Wright to up to 14 years in prison.

According to Bossip, which amounted to a spokesman for the Mecklenburg County District Attorney's Office, Judge Carla N. Archie imposed a sentence of 10 to 14 years earlier this week. Wright is currently in pretrial detention in a county jail.

Wright was supposed to start his trial along with two co-defendants this week, but took the plea in its place. Kevin Thompson also touched on several gun charges, while Derek Bolton took his case to trial and was found not guilty.

Wright admitted that he sprayed a Sprinter van, an SUV and a Hyatt Hotel lobby with bullets, possibly the orientation of Yo Gotti's rival Young Dolph who was in town that weekend for a concert. However, that has not yet been proven.

The shooters, in the end, they reach the self-proclaimed King of Memphis, a year later, when the vehicle he was driving was hit with about 100 bullets, although he was not hurt.

According to the district attorney's office, Wright pleaded guilty to five charges of discharging a firearm into occupied property, discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle in the transaction, conspiracy to discharge a firearm in an occupied dwelling, eight counts of discharge of a firearm at an occupied dwelling and misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon.

Despite the connection, Yo Gotti was reportedly not involved.

Dolph was also shot last September at the intersection of Highland and Hollywood in Los Angeles. After a couple of days in the hospital, he made a full recovery
