Gunmen open fire on buses carrying rap star Lil Wayne, crew
Two tour buses carrying rap star Lil Wayne and his entourage came under fire early Sunday in Georgia, according to US media, which said no one was injured in the shooting.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper reported that the shooting by unknown assailants occurred in Cobb County, near Atlanta, around 3:30 am (0730 GMT), after the music star completed a performance at an area night club.
Police determined that two tour buses used by Lil Wayne and his crew had been shot multiple times, the daily said.
Officials said the two buses were carrying a total of about a dozen passengers at the time of the shooting.
“Witnesses could only provide a limited description of the suspect vehicles,” Cobb County Police spokeswoman Elizabeth Espy told the newspaper.
“They were described as two white vehicles, possibly a Corvette-style vehicle and an SUV.”
