At the time the only description of the suspects was that they were in two white cars — one SUV and one sports car, which might have been a Corvette.

Atlanta's Channel 2 Action News uncovered an indictment that claims Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, along with Birdman, aka Bryan Williams, were involved in a conspiracy to kill Lil' Wayne.

Young Thug's tour manager Jimmy Winfrey, or Peewee Roscoe to some, has been charged with the actual shooting.

WSB-TV's Mike Petchenik broke the story last night via Twitter.
