Lil Wayne’s 2015 tour bus shooting has been addressed in Young Thug’s indictment and now, the prosecutors are claiming that “the man accused of shooting the bus, Jimmy Winfrey, also known as Peewee Roscoe, has ties to YSL” via New York Times;
Winfrey is expected to be re-tried in the shooting incident, as he was initially sentenced to 20 years but was released on a technicality. Young Thug and Birdman were listed as co-conspirators in the tour bus shooting, but they were never charged. Winfrey has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the recent indictment.
Another incident brought up in the indictment involves an alleged YFN attempt on rapper YFN Lucci’s life two months ago when he was stabbed in jail. Young Thug was arrested and charged with racketeering, murder, armed robbery, and participation in criminal street gang activity. Gunna turned himself over to authorities on Monday (May 10), and he was charged with one count of conspiring to violate the RICO Act.
Everyone knew what went down, but Thug has, even more, to worry about than just that incident.
The 56-count grand jury indictment charges 28 members and associates of Young Slime Life or “YSL.”
The indictment includes charges of conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, murder, armed robbery, and participation in criminal street gang activity.
