Young Thug and Birdman have been named in an indictment that alleges that they conspired to murder rapper Lil Wayne. In a story that sounds more like a plot to a bad movie than real life, the two men and a third, PeeWee Roscoe, allegedly tried to kill Wayne back in April when his tour bus was shot up following an Atlanta performance.

PeeWee, real name Jimmy Winfrey, was arrested following an investigation into the shooting after police found evidence linking him to the crime. A portion of the indictment references the night of the shooting:

“After Atlanta Police discontinued their escort [of Wayne’s tour bus], (Winfrey) and fellow Blood Gang members entered Interstate 285 from Atlanta Road in Cobb County in pursuit of the buses occupied by (Lil Wayne’s) group,” the indictment reads. “(That’s when) the white sports car pulled beside the buses, shots were then fired into the buses from the sports car with a.40 caliber handgun and a 9mm handgun.”

The indictment adds that PeeWee posted a photograph of the white Camaro used in the crime on his Instagram account before later deleting it. The car was then found at the home of one of Winfrey’s relatives.

This story was broken by WSB reporter Mike Petchenik, who revealed details of the indictment in a series of tweets. According to Petchenik, Winfrey is helping law enforcement with their investigation.
