DeSean Jackson's L.A. home was the scene of a violent home invasion incident this week -- and at least one person inside got pistol-whipped ... TMZ Sports has learned.
It all went down Wednesday morning at Jackson's home in Tarzana, CA -- with law enforcement sources telling us 4 to 5 people stormed the home with guns.
We're told the Washington Redskins star was NOT home at the time -- but there were roughly 6 people inside who FOUGHT the intruders.
Law enforcement sources tell us at least one person in the home was pistol-whipped and suffered minor injuries.
Eventually, the people inside the home fought off the intruders who fled from the scene.
Cops arrived a short time later and took a report.
We're told investigators believe the intruders had been in the home before. Sources connected to the incident tell us the intruders appeared to know exactly where the security cameras were placed.
