FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – Police in South Florida said rapper Rick Ross crashed his Rolls Royce into a building after hearing shots fired nearby.

Fort Lauderdale police said Ross and his companion, fashion designer Shateria L. Moragne-el, reported hearing multiple shots fired in their direction about 5 a.m. Monday. Police said Ross lost control of the silver Rolls and crashed into an apartment building.

Neither Ross nor his passenger was injured and police said it did not appear any bullets struck the Rolls.

The police report uses Ross’ real name, William L. Roberts. Ross turned 37 years old Monday.

Authorities said unknown suspects fled before police arrived. TV news footage showed a bullet hole in the window of a nearby restaurant.

A Ross spokesman didn’t respond to email seeking comment.
