A 911 caller told police four people had been shot at Lil Wayne's Miami home. Lil Wayne has now confirmed that the report was a prank call.
A call from Lil Wayne's Miami home has sent police rushing to the rapper's house today. While reports indicate that Wayne was not at his house at the time of the report, the caller suggested that four people had been shot at the mansion.
Apparently the cops have already set up a perimeter around the home. We're still waiting on updates on what is actually happening on the scene.
In related news, about two weeks ago, cops made their way to Wayne's place after a "suspicious person" was said to be lurking around the premises. So far, there's no indication that the two alleged incidents are linked.
We'll keep you updated on the situation.

Update: Cops now suspect that this was perhaps a "Swatting" prank, as no evidence of a shooting has been found thus far, but they have not ruled it out just yet.
"Swatting" is a possibility but MBPD does not take chances when responding to these types of calls.— Miami Beach Police (@MiamiBeachPD) March 11, 2015
Update: Wayne has confirmed that the call made to police was in fact a prank, taking to Twitter to verify the news, naturally without the use of Cs. Seeing that no one was hurt, we're taking this as very good news.
