Chris Brown

SWATTING VICTIM

Cops Swarm L.A. Home

EXCLUSIVE

Cops raced to Chris Brown's Hollywood Hills home Monday afternoon ... after someone called 911 and reported a domestic incident involving a gun, but we're told it was all a prank.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the caller claimed a mother and father were in a fight and the father went to another room in the house to get a gun.  At that point the caller hung up, never mentioning it was Chris Brown's house.

When cops arrived there was no evidence of a gunman or for that matter any dispute.

Chris was NOT home at the time.

This is the latest in a string of swatting incidents involving celebs, the most recent being last Friday when someone falsely reported a man with a gun in the home of Kris and Bruce Jenner.

LAPD law enforcement sources tell us ... they are determined to catch the culprits ... and STAT.

Stop with the SWAT ****! Do what we did back in the good old days. We would send freaks from escort services to the house of people we hated. Check out the personal ads, it's a prank just waiting to happen and nobody gets hurt, unless they want to. There is nothing funnier than watching a guy with a suitcase going up to your neighbor's door.

While I don't officially approve of swatting, if it's going to be done, at least the people doing it are picking the right celebrities to harrass - Chris Brown, the Kardashians, Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher. Lets hope Lindsay and Lady Gaga are on the shortlist for the next fake call.
