GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – 27-year-old Leonard Earl Williams, Jr. was sentenced to more than six years in prison Friday, according to Pitt County District Attorney Kimberly Robb.
He pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit 2nd-degree murder.
Greenville Police responded to a shots fired call in the Mosley parking lot on June 30, 2012, across the street from The Tavern Club. It stemmed from a large fight inside Club Phoenix, which has since closed down.
Bouncers escorted several males and females due to the fight. The altercation continued between rival gang members and it drifted into the parking lot across from the Tavern.
That’s where Dontae Haddock was one of two shot. He was pronounced dead at the Vidant Trauma Unit. A female was shot, but her injury wasn’t life-threatening.
