Police said as Algernod Washington, who goes by the stage name "Plies," wrapped up his performance, two members of his entourage began shooting when his mike was cut off so another rapper could take the stage. Five people were shot and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Washington, 30, is charged with illegal possession of a concealed weapon. The two other men are charged with attempted murder. Washington spent a few semesters as a student at USF.

With a name like that, I can see why he has an alias. I wouldn't want anyone to call me by my government name if it were that.
