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.

Ok let me break this down for all of the plp who dnt kno whats going on. Fist this has nothing to do with rap in general, this is nothing more then plp seeing u being successful n wanting wat u have or wanting to take u out of this world. Hate lives n a lot of plp all of us n some way, so if this guy is on tv n on stage talking about money,guns,n all this gangsta ****, when he gets n a city thats full of those type of plp they will check him on it...i live n charlotte on the eastside where it jumped off so cut the whole rap idea its how these so called rappers present themselves to the public...

I'm confused. known felons were trying to rob him and his security team fought back. I guess when Black men defend themselves they are criminals. Malcolm was right, no mater what we do you're going to HATE us.

@Mikaeel: Granted, the first string of comments I read were just plain ignorant. But I think that it was more of a bias toward rappers, not black people. Malcolm was an extremist and that has never solved anything. It's not white people keeping y'all down. It's people like Tyler Bland, saying things like "Shoot first and ask questions later" that are not only giving you guys a bad name, but the human race as a whole.
