In the second celebrity "swatting" incident in as many days, Los Angeles police responded to the home of singer Rihanna after a caller reported someone was shot inside her Pacific Palisades home.
Emergency dispatchers received the call shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday reporting that someone had been shot and wounded inside the singer's home in the 900 block of Rivas Canyon Road, said LAPD Officer Bruce Borihahn.
Officers secured the location and quickly determined the call was a hoax. Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Fenty, was not home when police responded to her home.
The incident comes a day after someone contacted police saying there was an assault at Sean Combs' Toluca Lake home. Combs also was not home at the time and police found no evidence of a crime.
