Charges Dropped Against Men Who Shot Up Waka's Tour Bus

Rap Daily: Prosecutors in North Carolina has dismissed all charges against the six men who allegedly shot up Waka Flocka Flame's tour bus as the rapper was talking to fans in the parking lot of a car stereo store in February.

Waka Flocka Flame's security guard shot a man during the botched robbery attempt at Car Stereo Warehouse in East Charlotte, where he was having a new audio system fitted.

All of the charges were dismissed because none of the witnesses would identify a shooter.

A few days later, police said a white Dodge Charger at the scene of the crime led police on a high speed chase, which eventually led to the apprehension of several of the suspects.

District Attorney Andrew Murray said that despite the shooting and the men's long rap sheets, there was also no evidence of an attempted robbery.

"We didn't have enough evidence to prosecute any of them," District Attorney Andrew Murray told The Observer. "The defendants are still in custody. That's why we need to dismiss the charges now. I'm not thrilled about having to dismiss these charges. Some of these guys have felony records."

According to Murray, prosecutors dropped multiple charges against the men, including attempted armed robbery, conspiracy and discharging a weapon into an occupied territory.
