"Swatting" refers to a prank in which someone convinces authorities to dispatch an emergency response for a fake incident. Many celebrities have been victims of swatting, including Justin Timberlake, Tom Cruise and Miley Cyrus.
Before it was clear that the shooting was a hoax, Wayne's label, Young Money, tweeted that Wayne was not home at the time.
"Wayne is okay. Wasn't home during alleged events," the tweet read.
