Police rushed to Lil Wayne’s Miami Beach mansion on Wednesday after someone called the cops.
According to police, the caller also indicated four people may be injured and that they were not on the scene at the time.
Miami police have set up a perimeter around the house on La Gorce Island.
According to TMZ, Wayne is in Miami but wasn’t at home. Young Money president Mack Maine assured fans that everyone on their side was OK.
Everybody good on our side…thanks for the concern

The incident comes 11 days after police found a suspicious person lurking outside the home. The man was let go because when they arrived he was on public property.
UPDATE: It appears that it was all a hoax. The Miami Beach Police called the incident a swatting, which is when a prankster calls in a fake shooting. Previous swatting victims have included Rihanna, Diddy, and Justin Timberlake.
