Charlotte Police have now arrested six suspects in connection with the shooting — each is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and two felonies of shooting into occupied property. Each is being held on at least $200,000 bond.
One of the suspects is aspiring rapper Antonio Stukes, who was shot in the shoulder by one of Waka’s security guards. Stukes tells WCNC that he was an innocent bystander, who was caught in the crossfire and was merely trying to get his demo CD to Waka.
Waka’s publicist, Kali Bowyer, says “We are pleased with the attentiveness by the Charlotte Police Department in capturing these individuals in such a timely manner. It is such a shame that one would risk the lives of innocent women and children in hopes of stealing one’s jewelry.”
