Waka Flocka Flame Shooters Still on the Loose

Two men suspected of shooting Waka Flocka’s tour bus in Charlotte, North Carolina, are still on the run.

According to Charlotte’s Channel 9 news, the alleged assailants led Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers on a high-speed chase last night, but were able to escape arrest. As of press time, no charges have been filed in the case.

As previously reported, Waka was at Car Stereo Warehouse in Charlotte on Wednesday afternoon (February 16), when a group drove in to the store’s parking lot and unleashed at least five shots at his bus.

Flame’s security detail returned fire and, according to NBC news affiliate, WCNC, hit a man in the shoulder, who claims he was an innocent bystander. An alleged fan of the 1017 Brick Squad rep , the man, an aspiring rapper, claims he was hoping to get a record deal with Waka. He is recovering in Presbyterian Hospital.

Flocka was unharmed in the incident. “Waka is fine and so is his the team,” his publicist Kali Bowyer told XXL.

A motive is still undetermined in the case and a spokesperson for CMPD have yet to return calls for comment.

    I think Waka music is bullshit but to say you wish they would of shot him because his music is bad. You got some twisted views on life bro. You need some help fo real

    Although Waka (or wacka as I like to call him) and his music sucks, death is a cold sentence I wouldn’t chill him or any other dude with.

    But from the opposite angle…..

    His music clearly has no aim and he waves the flag of violence all day in it. So when someone click-clacks over that soundtrack he provided, he has to accept some responsibility for that.

        What up brethren? Yep. It’s one thing to hate his music. Totally different to hope he’s takin’ a dirt nap.

    And folks give dudes like B.o.B., Kanye, 50, Jay, and Drake shit for going hip-pop. The type of music you create generates the kind of fans or people you interact with. And the crowd that Waka’s music generate are dudes that see hip-hop as the new crack hustle. Where niggas can get robbed or shot over bullshit beef or petty finances. And I don’t even hate Waka as a person. Just the effect he has in promoting dumbasses an excuse to commit violent or fucked up acts in the name of using hip-hop as a hustle.

  • Truth B Told

    Second that @nicholasdelorejo Wakas aggressive sh*t can be said to lead too this, but damn.
