Rick Ross is not only celebrating his 37th birthday today – he’s celebrating the act that he’s even still alive.
After have a birthday party in Miami last night at club LIV, Ross and girlfriend Shateria L Moragne-el were driving his Rolls-Royce along Las Olas Blvd in Fort Lauderdale when authorities say an unknown suspect armed with an assault rifle began shooting at the rapper. From TMZ:
Local police claim dozens of shots were fired and in his effort to flee the drive-by shooter, Ross crashed his car into a building. Luckily, Ross and his passenger were unhurt.
Cops say another vehicle had pulled up next to the Rolls … when someone inside opened fire on Ross’ car. Ross’ Rolls reportedly crashed into a building while trying to speed away from the gunfire. So far, cops have not made any arrests in connection with the shooting — and have not identified any suspects.
And Local10.com had this to add:
They asked him to get out of the car and he and his girlfriend sat on the side and waited to see if he was the victim or he was being victimized,” said Beth Balk, who lives in the apartment into which the car crashed.
No one was injured, but many of the popular storefronts along Las Olas, including the popular Floridian, now have bullet holes.
