L’A Capone’s Killer Found Guilty, Mother Reveals

L’A Capone has gotten justice for his murder, his mother revealed. Capone, born Leonard Anderson, was shot and killed while leaving a studio on Sept. 26, 2013. He was 17.

Dedra Morris, aka Momma Capone, took to IG to reveal one of her son’s killers have been convicted for his murder.

The caption on her post read, “I know u in heaven smiling down right now got some justice for you today 1 down 2 more to go #justiceforlacapone.”

Her second IG post related to Capone’s trial read, “Guilty.”

The three men charged in Capone’s slaying include Meiko Buchanan, Michael Mays and Sakhee Hardy-Johnson. It’s unclear at this point which suspect was found guilty.

Buchanan confessed to the crime while in custody awaiting trial on unrelated charges of aggravated battery of a peace officer and aggravated use of a weapon, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Mays and Hardy-Johnson also confessed to the crime, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Buchanan’s role in the murder was driver of the “trail car,” a vehicle that follows the lead car containing the gunman, Assistant State’s Attorney Alex Molesky told the Tribune.

Buchanan allegedly said he pulled into the alley and watched the gunman sneak up on L’A and shoot him twice.

The alleged rival gang members had an ongoing dispute with Capone, Molesky said in court, according to the Tribune.

In July, Momma Capone took to IG to announce justice for her son was coming soon.
