A person called police claiming to have shot four people, but a police search found no incident. The rapper was not at home at the time, according to his record label.
Police in Miami Beach, Florida, responded on Wednesday to what was later revealed to be a false report of a shooting at the home of rapper Lil Wayne, according to a police spokesperson.

Miami Beach Police spokesperson Ernesto Rodriguez told reporters that SWAT teams have established a perimeter at the scene, and searched each room of the extensive waterfront mansion.
Several hours later, Rodriguez confirmed the entire incident had been a "hoax" and that no victims had been located.
"This ties up a lot of police resources when possibly someone might need help at another location," he said
