Body Found at Miami Gardens Home Owned By Rick Ross

40-year-old man's body found outside rapper's home

Authorities say a man was found shot to death Wednesday morning outside a Miami Gardens home owned by rapper Rick Ross.

Miami Gardens police spokesman Sgt. Bill Bamford said officers responding to gunshots found the body of 39-year-old Gregory Paul Nesbitt outside the home at 3203 Northwest 181st Street around 7 a.m.

Nesbitt was shot several times and neighbors said he had been at the house before, Bamford said.

"It was a loud bam. I jumped up," neighbor Alberta Chandler said. "I said that was a shot. That wasn't a firecracker."

Bamford said the house is registered under Ross' birth name, William L. Roberts II, and that he purchased it in 2010. Online property records also showed the house belonging to Ross under his birth name.

Bamford added that it's a home Ross may own but not one where he lives.

The circumstances behind the shooting are unknown.
