EXCLUSIVE

More than A DOZEN cop cars and TWO police helicopters raced to Diddy's L.A. home moments ago ... but law enforcement sources tell TMZ the incident is yet another "swatting" prank.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... a swatter made a call that someone was shot inside the home.

Sources at the scene tell us ... cops are already dispersing ... and officials now know it was another celebrity swatting prank.

We were initially told the target was Steve Carell ... there were multiple cop cars in his driveway.  We're told cops secured his house because it's right next to Diddy's.

In fact, Diddy isn't the first star on his block to have been swatted -- Miley Cyrus' parents' home was targeted in a similar prank last year.

FYI -- cops take the swatting thing VERY seriously ... and have said they will prosecute the perpetrator to the fullest extent of the law.

Diddy's enemies are just testing and to verify if this is the really house, and to see the response time, so next time someone call in a 911 the police won't come because they will think its a swatting prank. You see this on the movies all the time, next time it will be real?

Caller: I'd like to report a completely talentless, ignorant piece of classless douche ghetto trash who fell accidentally face-first into a pile of cash which he has no idea how to manage.
911: Oh you must be calling from Diddy's house. Yeah, that loser needs to be taken in!

Diddy is a very talented artist and businessman. If you like his music or not is irrelevant it sold. Then after investing that money he was able to create a record labor. On which he hired artists like B.I.G. who was very successful. What ever your opinion is about rap it sells to many. And then Diddy came from the bottom I'm talking under the basement and he is very successful. If you're hating on him you're a little crazy if you think he is an idiot he had the determination to make millions unless you have come up with a product that has made you millions you should cool off.

It's NOT funny anymore, and never was. There IS such a thing as "karma" in the universe, and this will come back on whoever is doing this. And God help you then..........
