Rick Ross Shooting: Police Release 911 Calls
Like a gangsta, Rick Ross has kept (mostly) silent since escaping a would-be assassin's 20-bullet barrage on Las Olas Boulevard.
His only comment: A freestyle "wishing death on you niggas."
Meanwhile, the City of Fort Lauderdale Police Department continues to pore over surveillance video from the crime scene, seeking leads.
And though the FLPD tell Crossfade that they aren't talkin' 'bout suspects, the FLPD did release some edited 911 calls to the Miami Herald today.
When shots were fired at Ross's Rolls Royce "during the early morning hours of Monday, January 28, 2013 at approximately 5:00 A.M.," causing the rapper to crash his luxury ride into an apartment building, Fort Lauderdale's emergency switchboard lit up.
A manager from the Floridian Restaurant, where the Bawse and his girlfriend Shateria L. Moragne-el had grabbed some grub before being targeted by gunmen, called and reported: "I just heard a bunch of gunshots go off and a car sped by ... Oh my God, they're turning around and coming back. I'm hanging up.
"They're coming back ... I'm hiding."
A female witness from the apartment building also called 911, reporting Rozay's car accident: "I'm sleeping and I hear this screaming and yelling and a crash. There's a car at my front door!"
The 911 dispatcher asked: "Is there anyone in the vehicle?"
And the answer: "No, they ran away."
But considering he waited to chat with the cops at the scene ... Did the Bawse himself dial up the po-po?
That call, if it exists, hasn't been released.
