Yo Gotti‘s brother, Anthony “Big Jook” Mims, was reportedly shot and killed in Memphis on Saturday afternoon (January 13). According to Fox13 Memphis, at least five police sources have confirmed that the incident took place outside of Perignons Restaurant and Event Center on the 6300 block of Winchester Road.
Two men were injured during the shooting. One man—later identified as Mims—was rushed to a hospital, where he died. The other man arrived at St. Francis Hospital by private vehicle and was listed in critical condition. Police believe they were both targeted.
The shooting reportedly occurred during a repast, a meal shared by family and friends of the deceased person after a funeral service as a way to reminisce, celebrate and honor the deceased after the formal services are over. Several social media posts claim Mims was shot at least 10 times.

It didn’t take long for Twitter to connect the shooting to Young Dolph, who was fatally shot in Memphis more than two years ago. Yo Gotti and Young Dolph were beefing at the time of his death, and many are assuming Mims was killed in retaliation. Yo Gotti has yet to comment on the matter publicly. Police have obtained surveillance footage of the shooting but have not been able to identify the suspect.
While it’s unconfirmed who’s funeral Mims was attending, Yo Gotti’s sister—who goes by Robin Chanel on Instagram—has an “RIP Eric Bovan” post in her Stories.
This is developing story.
