The Kardashians have become the latest celebrity victims to be “swatted.”

Police arrived at Bruce and Kris Jenner’s Calabasas, Calif., home on Friday afternoon after receiving a call about a shooting that went down at the Kardashian mansion, CBS Los Angeles reported.

The police had received a 911 call from an anonymous female who gave them the address and informed them that the suspects were still inside the home.

“It came out as a very serious call of possibly someone shot inside the home out here in the Hidden Hills area,” reported CBS2’s Stu Mundel. “The Malibu sheriff’s’ took this very very seriously as they do any call of that type of caliber and they came out here in force.”

According to TMZ, police forcefully entered the Kardashian’s Hidden Hills house — with Bruce and Kris, along with their daughters, Kylie and Kendall, inside.

Several helicopters hovered over the home and  roughly 15 officers with automatic weapons locked down the street.

The cops ordered Bruce, Kris, Kylie and Kendall out of the house while they searched for the shooter who was said to be hiding in a closet.

When Kim found out that her family had been the victim of a swatting hoax, she took to Twitter and made the following statement:

For those who are unfamiliar with the term ‘swatting,’ the Los Angeles Times describes it as: “a fast-growing phenomenon masterminded by anonymous mischief-makers who alert police to a bogus crime situation, prompting a tactical response — sometimes by SWAT officers — that involves a high-risk search for phantom assailants.”

However many fear that the prank could potentially turn deadly! “Swatting is a very real problem for those in the public eye,” Blair Berk, a criminal lawyer who has represented the likes of Mel Gibson, Kanye West and Lindsay Lohan, told the L.A. Times. “It is only a matter of time before someone dies because of this stupidity.”
