  Law enforcement sources tell us Selena and her mom were home when officers arrived. They were both unaware of the 911 call, and had no idea why police were swarming the house.

Selena Gomez
has just been swatted ... TMZ has learned.

It's the second time in 2 hours a celeb has been targeted.  We broke the story ... Justin Timberlake was a swatting victim earlier this afternoon. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the swatter called 911 and told the dispatcher ... her dad killed her mom with a gun that was among a cache of 20 weapons.  The swatter then said the dad was going to burn the house down.

The LAPD is struggling to bust the ring that has wreaked havoc on the city for weeks.

This swatting crap is getting really annoying. I hope the FBI tracks down those punks and puts them in jail.

I am sure if Lindsay owned a house she would have been first on the list.

Celebs get helicopters and 20 cops responding, if it was my house I'd get 1 fatass cop with a bad attitude

I seriously hope they catch the idiots that are doing this. It is a waste of resources. Not to mention there are real life crimes going on and people that need police assistance. Find them, charge them and make them pay for the cost of sending all the police, swat etc etc to these fake police calls. It's getting ridiculous. Is the effing FBI involved yet?

Maybe next time LAPD should just send ONE cop car to see what was going on before calling in everyone and putting the public who really need help at risk. Just a thought.

I wonder whether the police would respond in the same manner if similar calls were placed about us "regular" people. TMZ reported helicopters and SWAT teams swarmed Angelina Jolie's house within a few minutes of receiving the prank 911 call...
