Imani Holly, 19, was apprehended in Knoxville, Tenn., according to Tennessee’s WHBQ TV station.

He was booked on four counts of attempted murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder, according to the report.

If convicted, Holly could be sentenced to several years in prison.

Holly allegedly shot the victims in the parking lot of the Tunica gaming property. One of the victims contacted the Tunica County Sheriff’s Office after she and the three others were wounded by several bullets.

They were in the lot walking toward the casino when they were wounded. Their injuries weren’t life-threatening, but each required treatment at Mississippi’s Regional One Hospital.

Holly and possibly other suspects fled in a white Infiniti with a Mississippi license plate, according to WMC, a Tennessee TV station.

The casino is located near the Mississippi River, some 30 miles south of Memphis, Tenn.

In 2021, Holly was arrested for several armed robberies at businesses in Tate County, Mississippi, WHBQ reported. He was arrested for similar charges in Memphis in July 2022, authorities added.

Holly allegedly failed to show up at court to face the charges after posting bond.
