Waka Flocka Flame involved in Walter's gunfire incident

Posted By on Thu, Mar 4, 2010 at 11:24 PM

Atlanta Police say local rapper Waka Flocka Flame and his entourage were involved in a late Thursday afternoon altercation at a downtown Atlanta clothing store that ended with a gunshot — but no injuries.

Officer James Polite says a group of men including Flocka — whose real name is Juaquin Malphurs — entered Walter's Clothing on Decatur Street around 4:15 p.m. to shop.

Another group of men entered the store, approached the rapper's group, and a physical altercation took place, Polite says. During the tussle, a man from that group brandished a gun. Flocka's private security guard then pulled out a gun and fired a shot, which did not hit anyone.

Polite says Flocka's private security guard has been detained and is being questioned by police.

In January, Flocka was shot in the arm at a carwash near Old National Highway. It's unclear whether the suspect in that shooting, who fled the scene, was ever apprehended.
