lil-wayne-shooting

Earlier today (March 11), police got a call from an outside source about shots being fired at Lil Wayne’s Miami Beach home. According to 7News in Miami, the caller said four people may be seriously injured. TMZ¬†reports that¬†Wayne is in Miami, but was not home at the time of the alleged shooting.

Authorities have made an outside sweep of the house, but have yet to make an entry. Local news reports that someone from Wayne’s team has arrived on scene.

UPDATE: Police confirm the call was a hoax. SWAT have searched the whole house and found no indication of any shooting, and are now leaving (because lunchtime).
