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.

I bet they wouldn't have sent a swat team if it was a call for an average person.

i don't understand all the fuss over this young man. i am more impressed with the celebrities who use their popular status and money to help the less fortunate.

The few times I've had a legitimate emergency the most i got was a few police cars & an ambulance. I'm just wondering why swat was dispatched? I fully blame the city for that one. If it was anyone else, there wouldn't have been a spectacle made. Just because it's Justin Bieber he get's the platinum treatment? It's the city being wasteful with resources. While I think the whole shena****n is just ridiculous & criminal, the city needs to take some responsibility for being frivolous with their man power.

The blame goes to the cops. Why not send a car or two FIRST which would take all of 3 or 4 minutes. THEN if needed- send in the national guard.

Think about it- helicopters. swat team for one guy
"waving a gun"?

Can we say hyper reaction?
