Young Thug Affiliate Told Lil Wayne He Would Shoot Up His Tour Bus
ATLANTA — Prosecutors have now added a charge of domestic terrorism to an indictment against the man police say shot up rapper Lil Wayne’s tour buses.
The updated indictment alleges Jimmy Winfrey, aka PeeWee Roscoe, told Lil Wayne he would “spray his bus.”
Last spring, police said Winfrey fired several shots at Lil Wayne’s tour buses in Cobb County and claimed Winfrey conspired with two other rappers to carry out the shooting.
Last month, police raided the home of Jeffery Lamar Williams, aka Young Thug.
Channel 2 Action News uncovered an indictment filed in Cobb County in June that alleges Williams and another rapper named Bryan Williams, aka Birdman, were involved in the RICO conspiracy to kill Lil Wayne when his tour bus was shot up in April.
The indictment also says all of the men are members of the Bloods gang.
The indictment alleges that Young Thug made a threat against Lil Wayne and Winfrey carried out that threat.
The indictment goes on to say that Winfrey was driving the white Chevy Camaro from which shots were fired at Lil Wayne’s tour buses the night of April 26 after a police escort left the buses.
“After Atlanta Police discontinued their escort, (Winfrey) and fellow Blood Gang members entered Interstate 285 from Atlanta Road in Cobb County in pursuit of the buses occupied by (Lil Wayne’s) group,” the indictment says. “(That’s when) the white sports car pulled beside the buses, shots were then fired into the buses from the sports car with a .40 caliber handgun and a 9mm handgun.”
The indictment goes on to say Winfrey had a photo of the Camaro posted on his Instagram account and attempted to erase it following the shooting. The Camaro was later found at the home of one of Winfrey’s relatives.
Last month, a judge denied Winfrey’s request for a bond.
