A spokesman for Waka Flocka says that the shooting began after a botched attempt to rob the rapper of his jewelry. Police said they found no evidence of a robbery attempt. Prosecutors also dropped the charges because no witnesses had identified the shooters.
“We didn’t have enough evidence to prosecute any of them,” District Attorney Andrew Murray told the Charlotte Observer. “The defendants are still in custody. That’s why we need to dismiss the charges now.
“I’m not thrilled about having to dismiss these charges. Some of these guys have felony records.”
The men faced charges of armed robbery, conspiracy and discharging a gun into occupied property.
