A Charlotte gang member was sentenced Thursday for possessing and selling stolen firearms, including a pistol he bragged about taking from the home of a police officer.
Dominic Xavier McDonald, also known as “Bombay,” a member of the United Blood Nation, will spend nearly 16 years in federal prison, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina.
After McDonald is released from prison, he’ll be supervised by the court for another five years. He pleaded guilty in March.
McDonald committed the offenses while on supervised release from prison for a previous federal gun conviction, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. He’ll serve another 15 months in prison for violating the conditions of that release.
The guns – two pistols, two rifles and two revolvers – were among several stolen from homes McDonald and his co-conspirators burglarized in October 2014.
McDonald’s plea was not related to the murder charges brought against other UBN members accused of gunning down a Lake Wylie couple in their home around the same time.
Earlier this week, Briana Johnson, 19, pleaded guilty to murder and other charges for her role in the killings of Doug and Debbie London. Prosecutors say the Londons were killed to keep them from testifying against three Bloods who tried to rob their mattress store.
Johnson is the latest of six reputed UBN members or associates who have accepted plea deals. All have agreed to testify.
