CONVICTED FELON GETS 6 YEARS IN PRISON FOR ILLEGAL POSSESSION OF GUN
U.S. Attorney Andrew Murray announced that Takobie Anderson, 20, was sentenced in the federal court of Charlotte, NC on August 17, 2020. Takobie was sentenced for illegally possessing a firearm. Takobie was ordered to serve 82 months in prison, followed by two years of supervised release.
The prison sentence stems from a shooting on April 21, 2019. Officers were dispatched to an apartment complex in Charlotte, NC in response to a report of a shooting.
A male and a female had been shot and had sustained injuries. Prosecutors say Takobie had shot the two victims following a verbal altercation between the victims and a relative. At the time of the shooting Takobie was on probation for a state conviction and was wearing an ankle monitor.
Takobie was arrested two days later on April 23, 2019. At the time of his arrest, a loaded stolen firearm was found. Takobie has a previous felony conviction and he is prohibited from possessing a firearm and/or ammunition.
