A Rolls-Royce crashed into a building on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale early Monday. Police are on the scene of the accident, which also reportedly involved a shooting.
WSVN-Channel 7 is reporting that shots were fired at the Rolls in which a “famous rapper” was riding before the car went into the building. Police are on the street marking bullet shells in the 1500 block of Las Olas. The road is shut down to traffic.
At around 5 a.m., several people in the neighborhood overheard shots fired, said Fort Lauderdale Detective DeAnna Garcia.
Witnesses at the nearby Floridian diner said that South Florida rapper Rick Ross was in the car.
No one was injured, she said. Police declined to say who was in the car.
The rapper, according to reports, talked to investigators at the diner.
We’ve had plenty of differences with the Bawse in the past, but hopefully no one is injured and everyone is safe.
We’ll have more details as they emerge.
According to TMZ reports:
8:45 AM PT — Cops have now confirmed Ross was driving the Rolls-Royce at the time of the crash.
The passenger was Shateria L. Moragne-el — who is reportedly dating the rapper.
Cops say neither party suffered any injuries. The suspects fled from the scene before cops arrived on scene.
Rick Ross smashed his Rolls-Royce into a building in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida early this morning … while trying to escape from a gunman who opened fire on the car … this according to police.
Ross was not shot during the incident — nor was a female who was also inside the car.
According to local reports, “dozens” of shots were fired at the vehicle around 5AM — none of which hit the Rolls. Several buildings in the area WERE struck by gunfire.
Cops say another vehicle had pulled up next to the Rolls … when someone inside opened fire on Ross’ car.
They really tried to do Ricky like Biggie. Sad to say, but you reap what you sow.
Be easy out there fat boy.
