Police sources have told TMZ that a 40-year-old man was shot to death at Ross's Miami Gardens estate early on Wednesday morning (February 29).
Police reportedly found the deceased man's body just inside Ross's front gate.
Ross was apparently not home at the time of the shooting and is not considered a suspect by police, but law enforcement are hoping to speak with the 'You The Boss' rapper today because he owns the property.
The star's spokesperson has not yet commented on the matter.
Ross has not updated his own official Twitter account since Tuesday afternoon local time.
