TMZ reports that a 40-year-old man was shot in front of Rick Ross’s home in Florida. This is a rather odd case, since the man was found on the inside of the front gate of the home. The cops, however, are ruling Ross out since he was not home at the time of the shooting.
MTV says that even though the house belongs to Ross, he does not live at the residence (which is rather confusing information). MTV also says that police will not even call him in for questioning.
I’m not positively sure why stories like this make TMZ or celebrity gossip news, but I’m glad the police aren’t automatically pointing the finger at the teddy-bear-shaped rapper. Usually I feel like black men, and well, black people in general, are the first blamed for heinous crimes. But I’m not going to lie, it is rather odd that the man was shot on Ross’s property, but I hope the cops get everything figured out, because as much as rappers sing about jail life, I doubt that they actually want to be behind bars.Tags: MTV, murder, Rick Ross, shooting, TMZ
