rick ross crashes rolls royce escaping drive by shooting Rick Ross crashes Rolls Royce escaping drive by shootingRick Ross is celebrating his 36th birthday, lucky to be alive. The rapper and his girlfriend, Shateria L. Moragne-el, were reportedly out for a drive in his Rolls-Royce early Monday morning when, according to TMZ, another car pulled up alongside Ross and someone inside opened fire.

Ross sped off, crashing the Rolls into an apartment building. Luckily, neither Ross or his passenger were injured in the shooting or crash. Police say the suspects fled the scene, however they are gathering security footage from a nearby building that they hope will identify the shooter or the vehicle they were in.

Dozens of shots were fired, according to local reports, but none of them actually hit the car. However, several buildings were hit by bullets. Prior to the shooting, Ross had been celebrating his birthday at a Miami nightclub.

This isn’t the first time Ross has been in the news over gunfire. Most recently, Ross got into a fight with another rapper, Young Jeezy, at the BET Awards. Shots were reportedly fired by Ross’ entourage that time.
