Witnesses told local television reporters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. that someone fired several rounds at a Rolls-Royce carrying the rapper Rick Ross, causing the car to crash into a building.

No one was injured in the incident, which happened at about 5 a.m. on Monday on Las Olas Boulevard and 15th Avenue, the Fort Lauderdale police said. “The occupants of the vehicle have asked for their information to be withheld from being released,” a spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Police, Det. DeAnna Garcia, said. “They obviously, with everything that just took place, are fearful for their lives and their families lives.”

local television station reported that an employee of the nearby Floridian restaurant and the manager of one other business had seen Mr. Ross and an unidentified woman get out of the vehicle after the crash.

The police said multiple shots were fired at the car, causing it to swerve and crash into an apartment building at 1410 East Las Olas Boulevard.

As a rapper, Mr. Ross is known for cultivating a persona as a Miami street gangster. He founded the Maybach Music Group and his most recent album, “God Forgives, I Don’t” is nominated this year for the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.
