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.
