Police said on Friday that an Atlanta man faces charges including aggravated assault and gang activity for shooting at Grammy-winning rap music star Lil Wayne's tour buses. 25-year-old Jimmy Carlton Winfrey fired at the two tour buses last month in order to gain street credibility, according to local media reports, which identified Winfrey as a member of the Bloods gang. About a dozen people, including music executives, were riding the buses after the rapper's April 26 performance at an Atlanta nightclub. Police said that Winfrey fired from a moving vehicle on a metropolitan Atlanta highway. No one was injured. Cobb County Police charged Winfrey with felony counts of aggravated assault, terroristic acts, gang activity, felony possession of a firearm, and criminal damage to property.
