Miami Beach police have confirmed that a call reporting a shooting at the Miami home of Lil Wayne was not legitimate. "We can say for sure it was a hoax," spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said, the Associated Press reported.

Update 3:14 p.m. EDT:

A call claiming that people were shot at the Miami Beach home of rap artist Lil Wayne Wednesday afternoon appears to have been a false alarm. "Unfortunately this appears to be a 'Swatting' call," the Miami Beach Police Department tweeted. "No victims / no injuries/ no subject at 94 LaGorce."

"Swatting" is when a prankster manages to trick a 911 operator or other emergency alert system into dispatching emergency services, such as SWAT units, to someone's home.

Police and SWAT officials cleared the home, finding no evidence of victims or shots fired, and determined that the call was a hoax, Miami TV station WSVN reported.

Earlier, Officer Ernest Rodriguez told the Miami Herald that "no victims have been found" in the police's investigation at the home. Police officers were searching the area at 1:45 p.m.

Four people were reportedly shot Wednesday afternoon at the Miami Beach, Florida, home of rapper Lil Wayne, according to the Associated Press. Local police confirmed that they received a call from a person who claimed to have fired the shots. A SWAT team joined police at the scene and were setting up a perimeter in the early stages of investigation. Miami's WSVN reported that four people may be injured.

Young Money, Lil Wayne's record label, tweeted that the multi-platinum rapper was unharmed and not at the home when the shootings happened.

Lil Wayne's mansion, worth $9.4 million, in located in the La Gorce neighborhood of Miami, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Lil Wayne, born Dwayne Carter, has recently been embroiled in a contract dispute with Cash Money Records, of which Young Money is a subsidiary, surrounding the release of a new album. The rapper filed a $51 million lawsuit in January claiming in part that he and his labelmates were owed millions. Cash Money Records is part-owned by Bryan "Baby" Williams, also known as rapper Birdman, who is Lil Wayne's adopted father and mentor.
