Miami police are investigating a shooting that occurred early this morning outside a Miami house owned by Rick Ross. The "bloody" body of a 39-year-old was found "just inside the gate opening" that leads to the house's front door; police were responding to calls about shots fired in the area. Ross was not home at the time, and the property is not his primary residence (the Miami Herald reports that he uses it as a recording studio and guest house, mostly), but he is listed as the owner in county records. Police are not treating him as a suspect. Still: yikes.
