'Hotboy' Gets 20 Years on Ammunition Charges

Posted By on Tue, Oct 28, 2014 at 11:23 AM

A Memphis man known as “Hotboy” will serve 20 years in a federal prison on ammunition possession after witnesses identified him as a shooter in two separate incidents last year.

Brashard Gibbs, 21, was sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Sheryl H. Lipman to serve the time with no parole followed by three years of supervised release.


Witnesses put Gibbs, also known as “Hotboy,” on the scene of a drive-by shooting last August at a car wash at 2562 Lamar. Robbie Webb was shot and killed in the incident and another person was injured.

Witnesses said they saw Gibbs firing an assault-style weapon from a vehicle. Ammunition matching that kind of weapon was recovered from the scene.

Gibbs was identified firing an assault-style weapon at a person during another shooting in September 2013. Again, ammunition recovered from the scene matched the kind of weapon Gibbs was seen shooting.

During both of the incidents, Gibbs was a convicted felon. He was indicted by a federal grand jury in February on two counts of felony possession of ammunition. He was convicted on those charges in July.

The crimes were investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the Multi-Agency Gang Unit.
