Shots reportedly rang out at Lil Wayne’s home in Miami and it was reported four people were injured. Miami Beach PD swarmed to the scene and upon arriving, nothing is what it seemed. Deets inside…..
[UPDATE 3:00p EST] Police have confirmed the call was a hoax.
Miami Beach police rushed to Lil Wayne’s home in Miami moments ago after a call came in (to the non emergency dispatch line) that four people were allegedly shot at/near the rapper’s home.
Miami Beach PD raced on the scene in La Gorce Island after the call was made that informed police four people were allegedly shot and seriously injured. Upon arriving and searching the home, authorities say there is NO evidence that shots were fired. Right now, the SWAT Team is searching the 8-bedroom, 10-bathroom mansion in search of suspects and/other subjects.
According to a police spokesperson, there is “no indication of any shot being fired” and they have “found no victims.” Police have not yet identified who placed the call. And as of 2:55p EST, the police department has given the ALL CLEAR.
It appears this may be a case of a swatter, basically a very expensive prank call to police. Once the person is captured, they will be responsible for the all of the costs of having the SWAT Team and police search the home. That hasn’t been confirmed, though, as of yet.
This comes a little over a week after police was on the scene at Wayne’s home after reports of a suspicious person lurking outside the home. The person in question was eventually let go since he was on public property.
Young Money’s official Twitter account confirms Lil Wayne was NOT at the home at the time of the alleged shooting and he is fine:
Wayne is okay. Wasn’t home during alleged events.
