The 24-year old was already locked up on unrelated kidnapping and child abuse charges. Now Tony faces charges of charged with first-degree murder, felony conspiracy to commit murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious bodily injury, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, five counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied property causing serious injury and three counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied vehicle/residence.
Z'Yon's aunt says she was driving Z'Yon and his four cousins to get snowcones when Tony opened fire.
"I hear a horn and when the horn beeped I looked around," she reportedly said. "I'm getting ready to turn and...I hear gunshots but I didn't know they were shooting at me. They're going to pay. I promise. They're going to rot in hell for what they did."
Tony was denied bond and will next be in court on November 21.
So far no comment from Rich The Kid.
