Rapper Rick Ross was the target of a assassination attempt shooting in Fort Lauderdale early Monday morning.
Fort Lauderdale Police confirmed to The Huffington Post that William Roberts, Ross’s real name, was a passenger in a Rolls Royce that crashed into an apartment building off busy Los Olas Avenue around 5 a.m. Witnesses said the Rolls struck the wall after it lost control as “dozens” of shots were fired at the vehicle. No one was injured.
NBC6 reports the gunfire came from another vehicle that was also traveling eastbound on Los Olas, but no arrests have been made.
According to WSVN, witnesses said Ross had been celebrating his birthday at the nearby Floridian restaurant.
The restaurant was also struck in the hail of gunfire, reports the Miami Herald. On lookers there said they heard about 15 shots.
Currently, Rick Ross’ camp has not released a statement confirming or denying his involvement.
