Cops Called to Kim Kardashian’s House After Gunshot Reported
It was a scary moment at the Kardashian-West homestead on Saturday, March 4, when LAPD officers showed up and forcibly entered the ritzy mansion of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West after reports of gunfire.
Someone called the cops to report that a home invader had been shot at the residence, while also claiming that a member of the maid staff had been shot as well.
But before a scandal could break, some even more shocking news came in.
The call was a fake. The LAPD quickly reported that no crime had been committed at the mansion, meaning whoever made the call apparently did so as a prank.
And as it turns out, this isn't the first time someone has called in a false crime report — also known as swatting — at one of the Kardashians' homes.

Back in 2013, Kris Jenner was the victim of a similar prank, when cops were called to her home for false reasons.
At the time, Kim lashed out on Twitter regarding the call, writing, "These prank calls are NOT funny! People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out who is behind this. Its dangerous & not a joke!"

But the call to Kim's house feels even more vicious, as it comes just a few months after the 36-year-old's harrowing Paris robbery — an event from which she is still recovering.
Why do you think someone would make a swatting call against Kim and Kanye?
