    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.
