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.

Last I checked Waka was a blood and all it takes for a crip to shoot at you is to be a blood. So can you blame the rapper? Yes! poor judgement... A rappers life expectancy is short anyway why become a trophy kill for a rival gang... smdh

This is tuly sad. Waka Flocka needs to be in jail. Something always happens when this THUNG is around. Waka and his "Ice Cream Cone" (Gucci)buddy needs to go back to there hood and never be seen or heard from again.
It's not about race here. it's about gun control in the US. We need to control ourselves and not act like a bunch of animals and want to shoot someone up everyime something goes bad.

for all of those who said something about illetracy you need a course in comprehension. The article said someone a coward shot at the Trail and his security(get it dumb ass his security shot back)it also said in the article that waka was involved but it also said and get this dumb ass he personally did'nt shoot back, it was HIS security that shot back. just enough for some I want to save america from rapper Police officer to foam at the mouth and want to arrest any and everything.

No there is no shoot out with Garth Brook and other artist of that nature but we don't go to those kid of event's because nobody in my neighborhood ever roped a damn cow or cryed over loosing a pick up truck or a damn ass dog.
