Gucci Mane’s 1017 signee Pooh Shiesty is wanted in connection to a shooting over an alleged botched drug deal.
Pooh Shiesty, a rapper signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Records, is currently being sought after by law enforcement following a Florida shooting incident last Friday, which has left two men nursing gunshot wounds. The incident is said to have taken place in the Bay Harbor Islands area, more specifically 10600 block of 97th Street, around 2:30 p.m.
According to police investigators on the scene, all three men with addresses outside of Florida linked up in the sunshine state for dealings involving drugs and expensive sneakers. Based on investigations, it is believed that the shooting was the end result of a deal going bad. Pooh Shiesty sped away from the scene in a green McLaren sportscar that he had arrived in earlier. Meanwhile, the victims drove themselves to a MDNow Urgent Care Center in their black Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan. Their wounds are said to be non-life-threatening.
The rapper was added to Gucci’s label sometime this year and featured on the label’s So Icy Summer collaborative tape. He has been pumping out numerous releases since earning his place in the newly formed camp, which also includes, Foogiano, Big Scarr, K Shiday, and Lil Quill.
