Waka Flocka

Gunshots Fired

at Tour Bus

2/16/2011 8:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Waka Flocka dodged multiple bullets today during a gun battle in Charlotte, NC ... according to eyewitnesses.

Waka Flocka Shooting
We're told Waka -- real name Juaquin Malphurs -- was on his tour bus outside a car stereo shop when two cars pulled up next to the bus and opened fire. Waka was not hit.

An eyewitness tells us Waka's security team returned fire on the cars and hit at least one of them. Waka's publicist confirms his security team fired shots -- and says the bus was shot 4 times.

FOXCharlotte is reporting police have detained multiple people -- and that one person was shot in the shoulder.

WCNC in Charlotte aired footage (above) of police on the scene with a man in handcuffs.

All I can ask is...

When the guns were shooting off, did it sound like Waka Flaka Flame?

Since your name is based off what a gun sounds like when its being shot.

Why are 2/3rds of these posts such jokes? Anyone saying it happened because he's black or a rapper is just stupid. So how about the white guy that shot a white Senator, does that mean we throw all caucasians under the bus as mentally unstable murderers????? I think not.

People seriously need to grow up, racism is a ridiculous 1800s issue, and the fact people are still so bigoted today is pathetic.

This is NOT a race thing. It doesn't matter if the majority of rappers are white, black, or green with purple polka dots because when it comes right down to it, there's no denying that there's a culture attached to the genre that glorifies and advocates angst, violence, ostentation, vanity, misogyny, and GUNS. I don't hate rap because I'm a racist, I hate it because of what it stands for.

See this? a nice proof that letting ''artists'' like waka flocka into the mainstream world is one bad problem. This is what happens when you let a hood rat on t.v (I'm black btw) Him and gucci mane should not be allowed to come near a camera, they're influencing all of the us ghetto's to be ''gangster''
