The shooting took place outside the Compound nightclub in Atlanta
A man has been arrested for shooting at Lil Wayne’s tour bus.
The shooting took place last month (April 26) at the Compound nightclub in Atlanta. The shooting happened just after 3.30am, as the rapper’s two tour buses left the club. No injuries were reported.
Reports via TMZ now confirm that a man has been arrested in relation to the incident and is being held on the charge of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon, and criminal gang activity.
The suspect is believed to be Young Thug’s tour manager. Young Thug and Lil Wayne are currently involved in a public feud.
Earlier this month (April 16) it was reported that Lil Wayne has been sued by a former tour bus driver.
Mark Jones, who worked with Wayne during summer 2014, is reportedly suing the rapper for alleged assault, false imprisonment and emotional stress.
According to TMZ, Jones refers to an incident during the Buffalo leg of Wayne’s tour, when he attempted to stop for petrol. Jones claims that the rapper “became irate and started cursing, to the point the driver became scared and continued driving without refuelling.”
Jones is reportedly claiming that Wayne “threaten[ed] to pistol whip him” and “kill him”. “Wayne came at him with a gun, cocked it at close range,” the report continues. This was followed by a “30 minute drive was in total silence”.
