Pooh Shiesty fans worry he’s suicidal as rapper wears ‘turtle vest’ at hearing for shooting that victim ‘can’t remember’

POOH Shiesty's fans are worried he's suicidal as he was seen wearing a "turtle vest" at a hearing for a shooting that the victim "can't remember."

The 21-year-old rapper, whose real name is Lontrell Williams, was booked after he allegedly shot a security guard in the leg.

Judge Venzer previously decided that the rapper would not be released due to having two open felony cases involving gun violence.

"There's is not a chance I am giving this kid a bond right now," Venzer said.

In the hearing, Shiesty was seen wearing a "turtle vest," leading fans to speculate that the rapper was on suicide watch.

The incident happened at the King of Diamonds strip club in Northwest Miami-Dade on May 30, the Miami Herald reports.

During footage reportedly posted to social media of the shooting, the man behind the camera says Shiesty is at the venue and claims someone stole the musician's money.

The crowd then appears to scatter as shots are reportedly fired.

TMZ claims that at around 4am a dispute broke out between Shiesty and security staff as he was being escorted out of the building. 

The security manager reportedly said it was because money fell out of Shiesty's pocket. But it was not clear how much, if any, money was involved.

TMZ adds that the rapper reportedly took out his gun and fired into the ground but that the shot hit off a guard's ankle and he was taken to hospital.

Shiesty reportedly fled the scene before cops arrived and now faces an aggravated battery charge, the Herald states.

However, according to TMZ, Shiesty's attorneys have now filed a new motion with what they claim in a sworn testimony from the guard.

The guard reportedly claims that he was on a powerful painkiller and was unaware what he was saying to cops when they spoke to him after the shooting.

He now does not want to press charges, according to the outlet, and doesn't want to be contacted by officials.

Just months ago, Shiesty was put in cuffs for an October 2020 shooting in Harbor Bay Island, where two people were injured.

The rapper was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and armed battery in that incident.

Dramatic footage from the shooting allegedly showed the gunfight erupted after one of the victims tried to sell high-end sneakers and marijuana.

The surveillance video shows a McLaren sports car, a Mercedes-Benz Maybach and another Mercedes pulling into a parking lot of a Bay Harbor Islands condo.

The drivers and passengers then get out of the cars and, just minutes later, a man in a white shirt and another in a black sweatshirt begin firing.

They then run back to the Maybach, which speeds away, with the McLaren following.

Another man can be seen hobbling back to other Mercedes.

Both of the victims were admitted to Aventura Hospital with injuries.

Shiesty is originally from Memphis, Tennessee, and had a hist song "Back in Blood."
