Was Ron Newts son Ronnie from Tray Five Seven?

Unread postby Holdit » April 12th, 2018, 11:57 am

He was the rapper in the new Jack swing era group called The Newtrons, killed in a botched liquor store robbery back on May 1, 1991. The group was managed by their father, Gangsta Pimp Ron Newt, who hails from the bay.

He was killed by the Korean store owner along with Gangsta Eric (Eric Daniel Howard), 3 more guys were arrested in connection with the robbery after initially getting away.

My question is: was Ronnie a member of 357 Crip in Pomona?

His father has stated the robbery was supposed to be the final step to Ronnie's initiation. I recently read that wasn't true.

p.m. on May 1, 1991, Jong Soo Yoo (Mr. Yoo) was working at the Mini-Mart at 180 West Rialto Avenue in San Bernardino with his wife, Hearan Yoo (Mrs. Yoo), and an employee, Sung Hyuk Im. Several customers were in the store when four men suddenly entered the store. Howard, described by Mr. Yoo as the leader of the group, pointed a handgun in the air. Howard chased Mr. Yoo to the back of the store, dragged him to the side of the store, hit him on the head with his fist, and took his watch. Howard threatened several times to kill Mr. Yoo. Howard demanded money from Mr. Yoo and hit him over the head with his gun. Mr. Yoo responded that the money was at the front of the store.

Meanwhile, two of the robbers jumped over the counter while another robber stood near the door. One of the robbers placed a gun to Mrs. Yoo's head and demanded money. Mrs. Yoo told the robbers to cool down. She opened one of the cash registers and a cash drawer. One of the robbers opened the other cash register and removed the money. The robbers took a total of about $2,000.

Mrs. Yoo told the robbers there was more money in a safe under an aisle floor in front of the counter. Howard pushed Mr. Yoo behind the counter and then walked toward the safe. The robbers continued pointing their weapons and threatened to kill the Yoos if they did not give them more money.

Mr. Yoo kept a .357 magnum revolver inside a paper bag near the cash register. Mr. Yoo knew he would be shot if he reached for the gun, but he did so anyway, because he believed the robbers did not intend to leave any witnesses. Mr. Yoo seized the gun and fired, hitting Howard. Dixon and Newt returned shots. Newt hit Mr. Yoo in the chest with one shot, and Mr. Yoo shot Newt and Burns. One of Dixon's shots hit Mr. Yoo. Dixon and Burns fled the store.

Newt died from a gunshot wound to the head. Howard died from a gunshot wound to the back of his head. He also received a nonfatal gunshot [20 Cal. App. 4th 1035] wound to his lower spine. Bullets recovered from both bodies were determined to have come from Mr. Yoo's gun. Mr. Yoo was shot in his cheek and chest. Burns was shot in his leg. The events of the robbery and shootings were recorded on the store's four surveillance cameras, and the videotape was played at both trials.

After his arrest, Burns made a statement to Detective Goggin admitting his involvement in the robbery. He told Goggin he had been in "the wrong place at the wrong time." He admitted he had entered the store and taken some money, but he said he had thrown it down after being shot. He repeatedly asserted he did not have a weapon.

After his arrest, Dixon made a statement to police officers admitting his involvement in the robbery. He stated he, Howard, Eric Lawson, Burns, and Newt had decided to go to San Bernardino to rob a store. When they arrived at the Meadowbrook Apartments, they decided to rob the Mini-Mart.

After they entered the store, Howard started hitting Mr. Yoo over the head with a handgun. Dixon got scared and started running toward the door when he heard gunshots. Dixon, Burns, and Lawson ran to their car and drove away.

In a second interview with the police officer, Dixon stated that Howard and Newt had gone into the Mini-Mart before the robbery to "make observations." During the robbery, Dixon, Howard, and Newt all carried guns. Dixon's role during the robbery was to point his gun at Mrs. Yoo and demand money. He placed something over his face so he would not be recognized because he had been in the store several times in the past.

Lawson fn. 4 testified at Burns's trial that he had participated in the robbery along with Burns, Dixon, Howard, and Newt. The five men went to Burns's house in Pomona the morning of the robbery. Dixon mentioned committing a robbery, but they did not discuss any particular store. One of the men had talked about "hitting a lick," meaning robbing a liquor store. The men drove to San Bernardino in two cars, and arrived at the Meadowbrook Apartments shortly after noon. Newt and Howard had guns, and Lawson saw another gun in one of the cars.

Howard, Newt, and Lawson went into the Mini-Mart to buy sodas. They had not previously discussed robbing the Mini-Mart. They stayed in the store about two minutes and left. Howard changed his clothes, and Howard, Newt, [20 Cal. App. 4th 1036] Burns, and Dixon jumped over the wall between the apartment complex and the Mini-Mart. Dixon was wearing a mask. Dixon, Newt, and Howard carried guns. Lawson stayed in the parking area of the apartment complex. Lawson heard several gunshots, and he started to run. Burns and Dixon joined him. They ran to one of the cars and drove away. Burns had been shot in the leg.
