Police: Reports of shots at rapper Lil Wayne home Unfounded

An apparent hoax summoned a strong police response Wednesday to the home of rapper after an unknown caller reported a shooting.

The call came in at 12:40 p.m. on a nonemergency line, Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said. The caller claimed four people had been shot at the waterfront home on an exclusive Miami Beach island.

The responding officers, including a heavily armed SWAT team, found no evidence of a shooting, no victims and no gunman. Rodriguez also said the owner of the home — 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.”

Police spoke with house staff members and went through the eight-bedroom, 10-bath home, Rodriguez added.

Property records show the home, featuring a rooftop pool and boat dock, was most recently assessed at $9.4 million.
