FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Police in South Florida say rapper Rick Ross crashed his Rolls Royce into a building after hearing shots fired nearby.

Fort Lauderdale police say Ross and a female companion reported hearing multiple shots fired in their direction at around 5:00 a.m. Monday. Police say Ross lost control of the silver Rolls and crashed into an apartment building.

Neither Ross nor his passenger was injured and police say it did not appear that any bullets struck the Rolls.

The police report uses Ross's real name, William L. Roberts. Ross turned 37 years old Monday.

Authorities say unknown suspects fled before police arrived. TV news footage showed a bullet hole in the window of a nearby restaurant.

A Ross spokesman didn't respond to email seeking comment.
