Police: Unfounded report of shots at rapper Lil Wayne home
MIAMI BEACH, FL - Police say no gunman or victims were found after an apparent hoax report of four people shot at the Miami Beach home of rapper Lil Wayne.
Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez says police units responded Wednesday after an unknown person called on a police non-emergency line at 12:40 p.m. to say four people had been shot at the waterfront home on an exclusive island.
Rodriguez says no evidence of any shooting at the house. Rodriguez says the call was an apparent hoax. The response included a heavily armed SWAT team.
It was unclear whether Lil Wayne - whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter - was home at the time.
Property records show the eight-bedroom, 10-bath home was most recently assessed at $9.4 million.
