Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, also known as Peewee Roscoe, pleaded guilty to five 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 vehicle, 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 30 counts.
