Tour buses carrying hip hop star Lil Wayne and his entourage have been fired at multiple times, police have confirmed.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Cobb County police spokesman Elizabeth Espy said that officers were called to the Mandarin Oriental hotel on Peachtree Road at around 3:30 AM “regarding someone shooting at a bus that Lil Wayne was on.”

The officers said the two vehicles were carrying around a dozen passengers at the time of the shooting.

Espy said that the shots had been fired from two cars: “They were described as two white vehicles, possibly a Corvette-style vehicle and an SUV”.

The gunfire came just minutes after the rapper left the Compound Club while the buses were travelling out of Atlanta on Interstate 285.

No one is reported to be injured in the drive-by attack that followed a performance by the star at the Compound club venue.

TMZ has reported that Lil Wayne and a number of other executives from the artist’s record label, Young Money, were on board, including Lil Twist and Super Hood.

Police say that currently there are no suspects in the shooting.

This comes a month after a report of gunfire at the artist’s home in Miami, Florida, was revealed by police to have been a prank.
