Man wins $500K in lawsuit in connection with 2011 Waka Flocka shootout


Investigators said they think the target may have been Waka Flocka, whose real name is Juaquin Malphers.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A man who was hurt during a shootout involving a famous rapper in Charlotte will get hundreds of thousands of dollars in a lawsuit.

Antonio Stukes sued Waka Flocka Flame’s management company and won $500,000.

Stukes and some friends said they were just trying to talk to the rapper when the security guards started shooting.

A bullet hit Stukes in the shoulder, police said.

The security guards said they thought it was a robbery attempt during Waka Flocka’s visit to Charlotte in 2011.

Stukes is currently in jail for charges related to a robbery in south Charlotte last month.
