Alleged Gangsters Linked to Rapper Rodarius Green Arrested for Easter Sunday Shooting in St. Petersburg

On Easter Sunday, four individuals were wounded in a shooting outside a sports bar in St. Petersburg. The suspects 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 the group being linked to past shooting and drug trafficking investigations dating back to March 2022. Significant evidence, such as firearms, ammunition, cash amounting to over $10,000, and jewelry, was 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
