Miami Beach police told WPLG-TV that the all clear has been given at rapper Lil Wayne’s South Florida home after a report of four people being shot.
The call was made to the police non-emergency line about 12:40 p.m. ET, the station said.
Responding officers, including a heavily armed SWAT team, found no evidence of a shooting, no victims and no gunman, The Associated Press reported.
Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez told the wire service that Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, was not there at the time.
“We can say for sure it was a hoax,” Rodriguez said. “It’s not a laughing matter.”
Property records show the home, featuring a rooftop pool and boat dock, was most recently assessed at $9.4 million, AP reported.
TMZ.com reported that the call may have been a case of “swatting,” when someone places a prank emergency call to get a police response.
