Suspect in Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting Turns Himself In
The main suspect in connection with Lil Wayne's tour bus shooting has turned himself into Atlanta police. TMZ is reporting that Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, who has been rumored to have ties with Young Thug as his road manager, surrendered himself Tuesday (June 2) morning in Cobb County, Georgia. Winfrey is facing charges of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon and criminal gang activity. Police say that Winfrey may have been looking to elevate his status as a Blood member by, "committing a high profile shooting of a rival rap artist." Winfrey has previously been arrested for drug possession in Florida.
During the early morning of April 26, Wayne’s tour bus was shot at as the rapper and his entourage were leaving an Atlanta club. Reports say that Wayne had gotten into a heated exchange with hecklers in the audience during his performance at the club and the concertgoers were eventually booted from the club. Following the show, Weezy left the club with extra security. Fortunately, no one was injured in the shooting On the same night as Wayne’s performance in Atlanta, Young Thug was performing songs from Barter 6 at a show in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which may provide a hole in the “Clifton as Thug’s road manager” report.
