This is not the birthday present the Bawse was looking for. According to reports, a vehicle Rick Ross was travelling in a Rolls-Royce last night as he left a birthday celebration was shot at multiple times by currently unknown perpetrators. WSVN TV reports:

Fort Lauderdale Police have gathered dozens of bullet casings from Las Olas Boulevard after someone opened fire on a vehicle. According to witnesses, Rapper Rick Ross was inside that vehicle. Several gunshots were heard in the area of 1410 E Las Olas Blvd., around 5 a.m.

According to locals, they said Rapper Rick Ross was in the Floridian Restaurant celebrating his Birthday and as he left in his Rolls Royce, someone opened fire. Police have not confirmed this information.

The bullets missed the Rolls Royce but the vehicle slammed into the restaurant. Luckily, police said no one was injured by the gunfire. Several businesses in the area were hit by bullets. The vehicle has since been towed from the scene.

Yesterday, Ricky Rozay’s Twitter feed was full of birthday wishes ( it is actually today, January 28) as the rapper turns 36.

According to the news reports (see below), Ross remained on the scene (inside the restaurant) to talk to investigators. The car  Ross was travelling was heading east on Las Olas when another vehicle approached and opened fire, reports NBC Miami. The driver of Ross’ vehicle tried to speed away but crashed into a building at 311 Southeast 15th Ave.  There are unconfirmed reports as to who was in the vehicle with Ross. 

Last year, Ross received death threats from members of the Gangster Disciples in North Carolina. Although the MMG rapper cancelled a portion of his tour, Rozay insisted it was due to a suspect promoter and not because of intimidation. Check out photos of the scene, and the crashed Rolls-Royce, in the gallery.
