The six men were apprehended early Saturday morning in connection to a shooting involving the rap rap artist on Feb. 16 at a car stereo store in Charlotte.

Police sources said the suspects planned on robbing Waka Flocka’s tour bus. Investigators said the rap artist had been at the Car Stereo Warehouse getting a stereo installed in his tour bus when a shootout occured between the rapper’s entourage and one other person.
“It does feel pretty good, knowing that they are off the streets and can’t come back and do the same thing,” said Warehouse employee Ronnie CochranWitnesses said they heard at least 10 shots. Cochran hid in the back of the store with several other people, including customers and other employees.
“We heard a couple bullets hit the front window, it kind of put a fear into all of us,” he said.
“I’m no friend of Flocka, I’m a friend of Jesus,” he said. “Everything was just real chill, and then [expletive] got crazy.”
Stukes’ Attorney claims his client was only at the store to meet Waka and wanted to give him a demo tape. Waka was scheduled to perform Saturday evening at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.
Hoover, Sellers and Stukes have bonds set at $200,000. They are each scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Bellamy’s bond was set at $225,000; Washington’s bond was set at $175,000; and Lawrence’s bond was set at $350,000 and they will make their first court appearance Tuesday.
Records show Washington was arrested 14 hours before the shootout, for misdemeanor traffic violations.
