"Poopgangsta" Being Sought For Christmas Eve Shooting At Ohio Nightclub
2/2/15 UPDATE: After five weeks on the lam, “Poopgangsta” was arrested today by a U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force. Also known as Tyrice Bowens, “Poopgangsta” will now face an attempted murder charge in an Ohio state court.
1/21/15 UPDATE: "Poopgangsta" remains at large, according to Euclid police
Police are searching for “poopgangsta” in connection with the Christmas Eve shooting of a victim inside an Ohio nightclub.
According to cops in Euclid, a city outside Cleveland, Tyrice Bowens is wanted for the attempted murder of a patron at the Blueprint Lounge. The victim was shot once in the leg and stomach and subsequently underwent surgery.
The 26-year-old Bowens uses the handle “poopgangsta” on Twitter, where his 475 followers are treated to refelections such as, “So my nigga out rhe bag young just spent $200 own drank I love my niggas no homo.”
Bowens, a father of two, is also known as “poopgangsta” on Instagram, though his 2300-follower account appears to have been deleted. A cached version of the page shows that it carried the motto “Shootin niggas left and right if they aint steppin right.”
It is unclear why Bowens, seen above, refers to himself as “poopgangsta.”
According to court records, Bowens was sentenced in mid-2012 to a year in jail for burglary and criminal damage. He was arrested last July for aggravated riot, escape, and resisting. Bowens was busted again in November 2013 for aggravated robbery, felony assault, and kidnapping. Both of his 2013 cases are open.
