Charlotte, NC – Blac Youngsta’s trial has been set for charges related to the 2017 shooting involving fellow Memphis rapper Young Dolph.

The Charlotte Observer reports Youngsta is expected at Mecklenburg County Criminal Superior Court on February 6 to face five counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling/moving vehicle and one count of conspiracy to commit discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling.

On February 25, 2017, over 100 bullets were fired at a black SUV in uptown Charlotte near the end of the 2017 CIAA men’s and women’s college basketball tournament. Dolph, who was riding in the vehicle, was reportedly a target. Police later discovered two bullet-ridden SUVs in the area as well.

Less than 18 hours after the incident, Dolph tweeted “U loose” next to a series of laughing emojis and claimed he was riding in a $300,000 bulletproof SUV.

Youngsta eventually turned himself in May 2017 after CMPD filed charges against him. As he was walked into Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, he insisted he was innocent. 

“I ain’t fire nothing,” he told Fox13. “I didn’t see nothing. I didn’t do nothing.”

Following the shooting, Dolph released an entire album about the night it happened called Bulletproof, which told his side of the story.
