The Miami police department have updated fans on what went down at an alleged shooting around rap star Lil Wayne‘s Florida home Wednesday (March 11).
According to law enforcement, Wayne was the victim of swatting.
“Unfortunately this appears to be a ‘swatting’ call,” the Miami Beach Police tweeted. “No victims/no injuries/no subject [present].” “Swatting” refers to a prank in which someone convinces authorities to dispatch an emergency response for a fake incident. Many celebrities have been victims of swatting, including Justin Timberlake, Tom Cruise and Miley Cyrus. (ABC News)
