Rick Ross was armed with a Smith & Wesson semi-automatic gun during drive-by shooting in Fort Lauderdale.
New information regarding the January drive-by shooting involving Maybach Music Group founder Rick Ross is beginning to emerge and it looks like the rapper was armed during the shooting.
A police report from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department, which was obtained by The Smoking Gun states that Ross was armed with a black and chrome, Smith & Wesson semi-automatic gun.
Located in Ross’ front waistband, the gun was fully loaded with one round in the gun’s chamber and 11 rounds in the magazine.
Unfortunately for Ross, AllHipHop.com reports that his handgun license was expired at the time of the shooting and this could mean possible legal trouble for the rapper.
The Miami artist quickly made headlines late January when the Rolls Royce he and a female passenger were traveling in was shot at multiple times in Fort Lauderdale. While attempting to flee the scene, Ross subsequently crashed his vehicle into an apartment building. No suspects were identified in the shooting.
