2015-03-11 20:05

Miami Beach - Police are responding to a report of 4 people shot at the Miami Beach home of rapper Lil Wayne.

Miami Beach Detective Vivian Thayer says police units responded on Wednesday after someone called to say four people had been shot at the waterfront home on an exclusive island.

Thayer says officers had not yet confirmed the information on the call or who made it.

It was also not clear whether Lil Wayne - whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter - was home at the time, but Young Money has tweeted that Lil Wayne was not home at the time of the alleged incident.

Property records show the eight-bedroom, 10-bath home was most recently assessed at $9.4 million.

In addition to arrests for marijuana possession, he was sentenced to a year in prison on a 2007 charge of attempted possession of a gun in New York after police found a weapon on his tour bus.
