Rapper Rick Ross crashed his Rolls Royce into a building after hearing shots fired nearby, Fort Lauderdale Police say.
They say Ross and a female companion reported hearing multiple shots fired in their direction at around 5 a.m. Monday. Police say Ross lost control of the silver Rolls Royce he was driving and crashed into an apartment building.
Neither Ross nor his passenger was injured. Police say it did not appear that any bullets struck the Rolls.
The police report uses Ross's real name, William L. Roberts. Ross turned 37 years old Monday.
Authorities say unknown suspects fled before police arrived. TV news footage showed a bullet hole in the window of a nearby restaurant.
A spokesperson for Ross didn't respond to an email seeking comment.
