In St. Petersburg, the police made multiple arrests in connection to a shooting that left four people injured outside a sports bar on Easter Sunday. The victims are linked to rapper Rodarius Green, also known as “Rod Wave.” Three suspects have been apprehended, with two more expected to be arrested, following the incident that took place over the weekend.

During a press conference, Police Chief Anthony Holloway revealed that Kevontre Wesby, Keith Wesby, and Christopher Atkins were found in Manatee County. The remaining two suspects have not yet been identified. The shooting happened on Easter Sunday when individuals associated with the “Young Gangsters” group, or YGs, opened fire into a crowd outside the Sonic Sports Bar and Lounge. Chief Holloway noted that over 60 shell casings were recovered from the scene.

Authorities have disclosed that the Young Gangsters have close affiliations with Rodarius Green and live in properties registered under his name. The arrests were made following searches of two of these residences, with evidence such as firearms, ammunition, cash amounting to over $10,000 and jewelry being discovered during the investigation. Fortunately, all four victims are expected to recover from their injuries. Chief Holloway emphasized that the victims had no prior acquaintance with the assailants and happened to be in the vicinity at the wrong time. The shooting incident also resulted in damage to six vehicles. The three suspects apprehended so far are facing charges of attempted second-degree murder while Kevontre Wesby is facing additional charges of possessing a concealed firearm and being in possession of a firearm while being a delinquent.
