Justin Bieber

Latest Target of

Justin Bieber is the latest victim of a 911 "Swatting" prank ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

A 911 call came in last night ... the caller claiming someone was waving a gun right next to Justin's L.A. home.

Police sent the cavalry ... cars, helicopters, the works.  Sources tell us ... Justin's security let the cops in, and they did a sweep of the house but found nothing.  We're also told cops did a similar sweep of 2 other homes on the block.

The block is a super-exclusive area peppered with celebs, including Travis Barker, Romeo, Kourtney Kardashian, and a number of athletes.

In the end, we're told cops determined the 911 caller engaged in a swatting prank using an app ... that's what law enforcement told us.  The same thing happened recently to Miley Cyrus and Ashton Kutcher, and a bunch of non-famous folk.

When you hear someone "waving a gun", this is nothing more than Hollyweird fakery.

Not saying this is cool to prank call 911 but these cops half of the time are useless, never there when you need them and they rarely do their job. This atleast keeps them busy for a minute.

The cops cannot trace the call because these pranksters use services like Skype and tango to make these calls. So basically they are untraceable.

TMZ needs to quit calling this a "prank". Someone is going to be killed. It is a crime, not a prank.
