Police searched the Atlanta area home of rapper Rick Ross on Tuesday, looking for a weapon a suspect might have dropped after a chase.
Police sources told Fox5 that the incident began with a call to Clayton County Sheriffs about a male armed with a gun in an attempted break-in linked to domestic violence.
The pursuit descended into a high-speed vehicular pursuit of the suspect, authorities said, until the suspect crashed near at Old National Highway and Georgia Highway 138.

The suspect ran onto a wood line on the 45-year-old rapper and music exec’s property with gun in hand, the outlet reported.
That led authorities to conduct an extensive search on and near Ross’s home, which rests about 20 miles from Atlanta.
Clayton County deputies told the outlet that they made their way onto the premises through a security gate.
Insiders told TMZ that the suspect was eventually taken into custody but the reported weapon was not recovered.
