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.” Following the incident that occurred last weekend, three suspects have been apprehended, with two more expected to be arrested.

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 took place on Easter Sunday when 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.

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. All four victims are expected to recover from their injuries.

Chief Holloway emphasized that the victims had no prior acquaintance with the assailants and happened to be in the vicinity at the wrong time. The shooting incident also resulted in damage to six vehicles. The three suspects apprehended thus far are facing charges of attempted second-degree murder; Kevontre Wesby is facing additional charges of possessing a concealed firearm and being in possession of a firearm while being a delinquent.
