According to a newly obtained police report, rapper Rick Ross was carrying a loaded handgun earlier this year when a gunman opened fire on him while driving in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Fortunately, Ross and his girlfriend, fashion designer Shateria L. Moragne-el, were not injured in the January 28 attack that ended with him crashing his 2011 silver Rolls Royce into a local business.
The police report reveals that the rapper was carrying a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun in his waistband during the shooting, but did not pull the weapon. While being questioned by officers, “Ross freely advised officers that he had a firearm on his person. For officer safety, [he] was briefly detained while the firearm was located and secured.”
HH has learned that the Smith & Wesson contained 12 live rounds, with 1 round loaded in the chamber.
The police report also notes that Ross has a suspended concealed weapon permit, which could mean jail time if formal charges are brought against him.
