(LOS ANGELES) — Miley Cyrus may have become the latest victim of the dangerous prank known as “Swatting.”
TMZ says law enforcement sources confirm a 911 call came in Wednesday at 6:50 p.m. Pacific time stating a possible home invasion with possible shots fired was in progress at Cyrus’ Los Angeles home. The report says the LAPD responded immediately and approached the house with guns drawn, but everything was quiet and no one was home.
Cops determined it was a false call and declared it a possible “Swatting” prank — in which bogus calls are made in an attempt to get SWAT cops to bust down doors of innocent people.
