Rapper Rick Ross Attacked in a Drive-By Shooting

ross11Rapper Rick Ross reportedly ended up crashing his Rolls-Royce into an apartment building after being targeted in a drive-by shooting early Monday morning.  Witnesses are saying that Ross was riding with a female companion in Fort Lauderdale when the incident took place.

Witnesses are also reporting that Ross was shot at over twenty times during the incident, but was able to escape unharmed.  The shooting took place around 5 am, and police say that they are not yet sure who was responsible.  Authorities are also not identifying the female who was in the car with Ross at the time.

Ross, whose real name is William Roberts, has recently had his life threatened by the Gangster Disciples, who have told him publicly that he owes them money.  There is no word as of yet regarding whether or not this group was involved in the latest incident.

 Fort Lauderdale PD spokesperson Det. DeAnna Garcia told NBC Miami that witnesses to the shooting are “fearful for their lives and their families,” so are not being cooperative with information.  Ross was celebrating his birthday before the shooting took place.
