A call to police claiming that a shooting had taken place at Lil Wayne's Miami Beach home was a hoax, and no such shooting took place, according to local law enforcement. A SWAT team responded to the rapper's home after the call this afternoon.
Miami Beach police wrote on Twitter that the call was a "swatting"—that is, a fraudulent call designed to bring a SWAT team to the home. After police cleared the home and did not find any victims, an officer told reporters, "We can say for sure that it was a hoax."
#UPDATE unfortunately this appears to be a "Swatting" call. No victims /no injuries /no subject at 94 LaGorce.— Miami Beach Police (@MiamiBeachPD) March 11, 2015
According to WSVN, police are now investigating the source of the call.
Wayne is okay. Wasn't home during alleged events.
