CHICAGO – A third man was charged for the killing of 17-year-old Leonard Anderson Aka L’A Capone outside of a Grand Crossing recording studio in september 2013.

Meiko Buchanan, 23, of the 600 block of West 60th Street, has been charged with first-degree murder for the  Sept. 26 fatal shooting which took place in the 7000 block of South Stony Island Avenue, according to Cook County court records.

Anderson left the studio where he had been recording music around 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 26 and went down an alley when he was approached by Hardy-Johnson and Mays and was shot twice, Molesky said at their bond hearing this month.

Buchanan admitted to being a Gangster Disciple Met Boy gang member and that he was aware of an ongoing dispute with Anderson’s gang, according to Molesky and court records.

A plan was hatched to shoot and kill Anderson, and Buchanan was tasked with driving the “trail car” from the scene, which would follow the lead car containing the gunman, Molesky said.

Buchanan said the trail car follows the lead car containing the shooter on the way to and from the murder scene, providing a buffer should police pursue the lead car, Molesky said.

Buchanan admitted to pulling into the alley and watching the gunman sneak up on Anderson and shoot him twice, Molesky said.

Buchanan also admitted to fleeing after the shooting, trailing the lead car in his own vehicle, she said.

Meiko Buchanan, 25, was convicted of murdering L’A Capone in September. Capone, born Leonard Anderson, was shot and killed at age 17 while leaving a studio on Sept. 26, 2013.

Buchanan was transported from Cook County to Menard Correctional Center in early November.

Menard Correctional Center is the same prison where L’A Capone’s close friends RondoNumbaNine and Cdai are incarcerated.

On Tuesday, July 5, RondoNumbaNine was sentenced to 39 years in prison for the 2014 murder of cab driver Javan Boyd. On Thursday, July 7, he was transferred to Menard Correctional Center in Menard, IL to serve his time.

NFL Fines Antoine Winfield Jr. $7,815 For Taunting Tyreek Hill During Super Bowl

Published

on

The NFL has fined Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr. $7,815 for taunting Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill during the Super Bowl, earlier this month. Winefield explained that the taunt was revenge for all the times Hill had done the same move to receivers throughout the season, including against the Bucs during their Week 12 matchup earlier in the year.

”The taunting, it was something I had to do,” Winefield said after the Super Bowl. “When we played them earlier (Tyreek)Hill went off on us. He back-flipped in front of my face and gave me the peace sign. So it was only right I gave him the peace sign right back. It felt amazing to be able to do that”

Hill torched the Bucs for 269 yards and three touchdowns during Week 12, but in the Super Bowl, he was held to just 73 yards. Winfield threw Hill’s taunt back at him with 4:06 remaining after successfully defending a fourth-down pass.

The Bucs dominated the Super Bowl, winning 31-9, and securing Tom Brady’s 7th championship.

The New York Mets have once again invited former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to join their spring training roster. Tebow, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, first returned to professional baseball in 2016. He’s been invited back to join the Mets for spring training each of the last four years.

In 34 games with the Mets, Tebow has batted .151 and hit his first home-run last spring.

In 2019, Tebow said he’s still optimistic regarding his hopes of making it to the major league: “That would obviously be something that would be special, and I think another part of the dream,” Tebow said. “Part of it’s just playing every day and enjoying it and competing, which I love. Obviously, that would be awesome. It would be a lie if I said that wouldn’t be super cool. … But I wouldn’t say it would be a success or failure if that did or did not happen.”

Due to coronavirus precautions, MLB teams are only allowed 75 roster spots for spring training.

During the rest of the year, Tebow works as a football analyst for SEC Network.

In the NFL, during the 2011 season, Tebow led the Denver Broncos to their first playoff victory since 2005, after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime.

“Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored,” she says, blaming the executives at WeTV. “However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most.”

Her lengthy message explains all that she went through as a member of the entertainment industry and how it took a toll on her as a person. She concludes by saying that what happened on July 16 was her “attempt to end my pain and my life.”



Continue sending prayers, love, and positivity to Tamar Braxton.
