Several individuals taken into custody following shooting incident outside St. Petersburg sports bar on Easter Sunday

On Easter Sunday, four individuals were wounded in a shooting outside a sports bar in St. Petersburg. The individuals are linked to rapper Rodarius Green, also known as “Rod Wave.” Three suspects have been arrested, with two more expected to be arrested, following the incident that occurred last 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 incident took place on Easter Sunday, where individuals associated with the “Young Gangsters” group, or YGs, fired shots 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 reside in properties registered under his name. The arrests were made following searches of two of these residences, with significant evidence such as firearms, ammunition, cash amounting to over $10,000 and jewelry being discovered during the investigation. Unfortunately for the victims of this crime they all sustained injuries but thankfully they are expected to recover from them soon enough. It is unfortunate that there was an innocent bystander caught up in this event who was injured but there are no reports of fatalities at this time.
