Charlotte, NC – DaBaby was in a North Carolina courtroom on Thursday (June 27) where he was sentenced for his involvement in a fatal 2018 shooting. But according to The Charlotte Observer, prosecutors have decided not to pursue any more charges against the burgeoning rap star.
Mecklenburg District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Meghan McDonald said as a result of the judgment, he did receive one year of unsupervised probation.
Two days after the shooting, DaBaby hopped on social media and explained he was in the store shopping with his two toddlers and their mother when someone pulled a gun “and tried to take my life.” So, he says he did what he had to do.
“Daughter could have got hit, son could have got hit (and) me,” DaBaby said in the video. “Lawyers … telling me not to say nothing… But two (people) walk down on you and your whole … family, threatening ya’ll, whip out (a gun) on ya’ll, let me see what ya’ll going to do.”
Police identified all individuals involved in the shooting and four people were taken to the Huntersville Police Department to be interviewed.
The victim’s cousin, Quinae Horsley of Charlotte, said “the family is satisfied” with this week’s verdict by District Court Judge Ty Hands, but they are still seeking justice. The family is retaining new legal counsel to prompt further action in the case.
