Miley Cyrus' L.A. Home Swarmed by Police After Prank 911 Call

Miley Cyrus is safe and sound, despite a troubling 911 call to police Wednesday night reporting a home invasion and possible shots fired at her L.A. residence.

Law enforcement dispatched a helicopter and officers with high-powered weapons to the scene, but soon found that no one was home.

"We responded to a call of a kidnapping in progress, one person shot, at an address on Amanda Drive," North Hollywood police told ABC News.

It turns out the 6:50 PM request for help was likely a prank call known as “Swatting,” designed to trick the police. If it was an intentional hoax, the caller could face criminal charges.
