It is a well-known fact that if you live the gangster life, it is likely you will either end up dead or locked up. However, for shot callers in that lifestyle, bars and walls aren’t always a deterrent from doing dirt in the outside world. According to reports, this was the reality for Gordon “QB” Evans, an NYC native who was the alleged leader of a Georgia faction of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods. Evans, 37, was already serving a 20-year sentence at Hays State Prison in Summerville, GA. However, Evans will now never be getting out of prison after he was convicted on charges related to him ordering a hit on a man from behind the wall using a contraband cell phone.
On August 17, after a two-week long trial, Evans was convicted on three counts of felony murder, two counts of criminal street gang activity and a count each of malice murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and aggravated battery in relation to the murder of Jeffrey Anderson.
On November 24, 2015, Gwinnett County Police Department responded to 2773 River Station Court, Lawrenceville, where the body of Jeffery Anderson was found with two gunshot wounds to the back of the head. Shortly after the murder, GCPD Homicide and Gang Unit detectives learned about a threatening text sent to the victim less than one month before the murder. After researching the telephone number from which the text message was sent, detectives discovered that the text was sent from a contraband cellphone being used by inmate Gordon Evans who was serving a 20-year sentence in Hays State Prison located in Summerville, Georgia.
The hit was allegedly ordered because Evans loaned Anderson $500 to pay his rent and Anderson failed to pay him back. The Gwinnett Daily Post reports that Evans sent Durell “Bali” Lewis and Dossie “Baby HD” Mann to do his dirty work. In text messages, he boasted about sending his “Luca Brasi” (a reference to Don Corleone’s hitman in the classic movie The Godfather) to handle Anderson. Last year, Mann pleaded guilty to the charges and received a life sentence. Lewis is still awaiting trial.
For his role in orchestrating the hit, Evans was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole plus an additional 20 years to be served concurrently.
