update_grey_gray_barGene Simmons' house was raided Thursday morning by cops looking for evidence of child porn, although we're told neither Gene nor anyone in his family is a suspect.

The LAPD's Internet Crime Against Children Task Force executed a search warrant at 8 AM, and we're told cops seized computers and other evidence.  

Law enforcement sources tell us, someone downloaded child porn either on one of their computers or using their Internet access. We're told neither Simmons nor anyone in his family are considered suspects or persons of interest. Gene was away on tour when the downloads occurred.

It's unclear who, if anyone is considered a suspect. We're told the family is fully cooperative.
