On Easter Sunday, a shooting outside a sports bar in St. Petersburg left four individuals injured. The victims, who are not affiliated with the “Young Gangsters” group or YGs, were caught in the crossfire of a group of assailants associated with the YGs. Three suspects have been arrested in connection to the incident, with two more expected to be apprehended soon.

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 outside the Sonic Sports Bar and Lounge, where over 60 shell casings were recovered from the scene.

Authorities have disclosed that the Young Gangsters have close affiliations with rapper Rodarius Green, also known as “Rod Wave,” 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.

Fortunately, 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, with Kevontre Wesby facing additional charges of possessing a concealed firearm and being in possession of a firearm while being a delinquent.
