According to Lott, Booth fired his gun, striking someone affiliated with his own gang in the lower body and two other men from the opposing gang in the upper body in an attempt to defend himself.

Lott says Booth was unlawfully in possession of the pistol that he used in the altercation and has been charged with unlawful possession of a pistol.

Booth is currently detained at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center after being transferred Friday morning from Lexington County on unrelated charges.
