The Miami Beach Police Department received a call earlier today claiming four people were shot in Lil Wayne's Miami home.
The call generated a great deal of distress in the area as the SWAT team was called and people were concerned about Lil Wayne's well-being.
Lil Wayne's record label assuaged everyone's concerns by tweeting he was alive and well.
Wayne is okay. Wasn't home during alleged events. — Young Money (@YoungMoneySite) March 11, 2015
But, as it turns out, the call was a hoax. The SWAT team entered the home didn't find any victims or signs of a violent incident.
The police department tweeted:
#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
