- — Larry Lynam (@scopedbylarry)Wed, Mar 11 2015 18:09:37These reports of a shooting of 4 people at Li'l Wayne's Miami Beach home seem premature @WPLGLocal10 .It is soundly like a swatting prank.
'Shots fired' at Lil' Wayne's Miami mansion turns out to be hoax
The incident is being described as swatting, in which a prank call is made to 911 to draw a large police response. The rapper was not home at the time, according to his record label.
