Charlotte, NC police have stated that a high speed chase that took place in the city last night was related to the shooting of Waka Flocka Flame’s tour bus on Wednesday.
Authorities in the area were on the look out for two vehicles, a white Dodge Charger and a Land Rover. When the Charger was spotted last night by undercover officers, the car sped off. After the car struck a police vehicle, its occupants jumped out and fled on foot.
Police believe that the individuals in the car were involved with the shooting of Waka Flocka Flame’s tour bus. As we previously reported, one man was shot in the shoulder during the incident.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the man shot was Antonio Stukes, 20. Police are trying to determine what role he played in the shoot-out.
Stukes was released from an North Carolina prison in December for convictions including assault with a deadly weapon.
Stukes’ attorney, Adam Seifer, told WCNC-TV, the Observer’s news partner, that his client shouldn’t face criminal charges.
“He was an innocent bystander who only went up there to talk to Mr. Waka about getting a record deal,” Seifer said.
