Police say no gunman or victims were found after an apparent hoax report of four people shot at the Miami Beach home of rapper Lil Wayne.

Officers responded after an unknown person called on a police non-emergency line at 12:40 pm to say four people had been shot at the waterfront home on an exclusive island, Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez says.

There was no evidence of any shooting. The response included a heavily armed special police team.

It was unclear whether Lil Wayne - whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter - was home at the time.

Property records show the eight-bedroom, 10-bathroom home was most recently assessed at 9.4 million dollars (£6.3m) .
