Birdman Blamed for Lil Wayne Shooting

A man accused of shooting up a tour bus that housed Lil Wayne and his posse in April says that Birdman was the mastermind behind the incident.

According to TMZ, Jimmy Winfrey says he shouldn’t be singled out for the crime, when “[Birdman’s] financial dispute with [Lil Wayne] is what ultimately led to the shooting.”

He didn’t mention the Cash Money mogul directly, but hinted that he was the head of the unsuccessful hit. Winfrey’s remarks are part of court documents related to an investigation into the incident, which left no one injured.

Wayne’s tour bus was shot up as he was leaving a club gig in Atlanta.

Birdman, along with Young thug, were linked to the shooting, according to an indictment about the case. Apparently, Jimmy Winfrey called cell phones connected to both music entertainers.

Birdman has denied any involvement in the shooting.
