MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Miami Beach police were called to Lil Wayne's mansion Friday afternoon regarding a supposed shooting, but no victims were found, authorities said.

This is the second time in a little over a year that someone has made a hoax 911 call to report a shooting at the rapper's home on La Gorce Island.

In the first incident in March 2015, a man called 911 and said, "I just shot four people, killing whoever else I see ... I don't give a (expletive) if you're a cop or not. I'm shooting to kill everyone and everything, you (expletive)."

In a second call, a person who sounded like another man made a similar claim to the police dispatcher.

"I just shot, like, four people," the man said.

The 911 call made in Friday's incident was not immediately released.

Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., responded to the latest incident via Twitter shortly after police left his home.

"Luv to the Miami (Beach) PD for always being alert, attentive & appropriate. Thk u," he said.

The Police Department quickly responded, thanking the rapper for his support.

"Our pleasure @LilTunechi, glad you're ok and thanks for supporting our guys!" the tweet read.
