Ryan Seacrest
is being swatted right now ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... a 911 call came in by someone claiming shots were fired inside the house by "mobster looking guys in suits with rifles."

Our sources say it has all the markings of swatting.

A slew of cops are at the house, which Ryan recently purchased from Ellen DeGeneres for around $39 million.

It's ironic ... Seacrest was just talking to Russell Brand this morning on the radio about Russell's recent swatting experience. Crazy timing.

TMZ, the first time somebody dies because of a swatting incident, their blood will be on your hands. No one cares besides you and the swatters. But keep it up. Your readers are getting sick of these stories and will eventually stop coming to your site.

another odd thing about this swatting, how are the "swatters" able to get these celeb address. Does caller GIVE a REAL address or does he/she just say "someone holding diddy hostage" and the cops automatically know where to go.

I hope the swatters stop this now. If they do one more, I hope it's Harvey who gets swatted. Payback for reporting every ridiculous swat and making the perpetrators famous.

i'd bet the LAPD is in on this swatting stuff. Remember when the Trash-Kanians got swatted and the cops all posed with the Lesbian Kris J married.

What's really going on? Someone's either going to use all this swatting and accompanying press to do something unthinkable, or is setting it up for just that.

No one gives a rats behind about someone being "swatted." Oh wow! Someone got "swatted."

Get over it. Nobody gives a rats behind.

What if its actually the cops? I know, it sounds crazy, but what if they just want to see what all these star's homes look like? Ryan Seacrest has a nice looking home. I'd wanna see it in person. ...just saying...

What the police need to do is get all the celebs phone #'s and they have an access code. If they have a call like this they call that # immediately to have them verify. If they don't get a response then they go to the house. It would be a reverse security system where they call the home owner. This is the only way it';s going to stop. I have a feeling this is going to continue, unless they do something.
