Two others were not injured in the drive-by attack, according to CBS.

He pleaded guilty to multiple felonies in March 2020, including single assault with a firearm and two violent assaults that would likely result in serious bodily harm, CBS reported.

Waring’s mother, Lauri Peterson, has in the past opened up about her son’s struggles with drug addiction, including heroin addiction. She told Bravo in 2015 that she adopted his daughter Kennady, who was born in 2012, due to Waring and his wife’s struggles.

“I have a son and he’s had a lot of challenges,” she shared at the time. “And he and his wife had a baby almost three years ago. He’s really struggling and, well, they’re both really struggling. And so [my husband] George and I decided to help and we actually adopted Kennady and that’s why we’re raising her.”
