Jenner House Swarmed By Cops After “Swatting” Prank (PHOTO)
The Jenners are the latest victims of “swatting.” On Friday, police swarmed the Beverly Hills estate of Kris and Bruce after a 911 call claimed an armed shooter was inside the home. When cops arrived — on foot and via helicopter — they discovered the Jenners home with daughters Kendall and Kylie — and no threat whatsoever.
After the incident, Kendall shared a photo (below) of the scene, writing, “I love it when 8 police officers show up at my door and 10 cop cars are outside my house.” “Just another casual Friday evening at the Jenner household. #nbd #EveryonesOk,” she added. Kim Kardashian later tweeted, “Just got a call from my mom telling me about this prank call that someone was shot in their home & 15 swat team & 3 helicopters showed up!” “These prank calls are NOT funny! People can get arrested for this!” she continued. “I hope they find out who is behind this. Its dangerous & not a joke!”
On Thursday, Tom Cruise’s Beverly Hills home was the target of yet another “swatting” prank. “Swatting” calls put the public in harm’s way, requiring first responders to divert their attention and resources away from legitimate emergencies. These hoaxes need to end.
