It looks like the case involving Lil Wayne's tour bus shooting has finally come to a conclusion, while the legal drama between Wayne and Birdman (at times, intertwined with this case), continues to lag on. Today the suspect, Jimmy Winfrey, pleaded guilty to 6 of the 27 counts charged in connection to the tour bus shooting.

Winfrey's lawyer initially claimed that he had no motive for wanting to shoot Wayne-- the lawyer brought Young Thug into the argument, as Winfrey is reportedly an affiliate of Thug's. He compared Thug and Wayne to members of an opposing football team-- just because they're in competition with each other doesn't mean that one wants to kill the other.

No matter, Winfrey has taken the fall. He was given a 20-year sentence from a judge today-- 10 years in prison, and another 10 to be served on probation.

According to a rep for the D.A., the 6 charges he pleaded guilty to are all gang-related charges. The indictment still mentions the fact that, following the shooting, Winfrey used a cell phone that belonged to Birdman-- we have no update on that front though.
