Add the home of Kardashian mom Kris Jenner and her husband, Bruce Jenner, to the list of celebrity domiciles targeted with fake 911 calls — a dangerous and resource-wasting prank known as "swatting."

"Just got a call from my mom telling me about this prank call that someone was shot in their home & 15 swat team & 3 helicopters showed up!," Kim Kardashian tweeted Friday. (She's currently traveling in Africa.)

"These prank calls are NOT funny! People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out who is behind this. Its dangerous & not a joke!

Authorities responded to the Hidden Hills home around 4:40 p.m. Friday after receiving a phone call — supposedly made by someone hiding in a closet — reporting shots fired and gunmen still inside at an address near the Jenners' home, according to TMZ. Cops believed the address was meant to be the Jenners', so they showed up there, helicopters and massive armed force in tow, to check things out, sources told the website. 

Kardashian half-sis Kendall Jenner provided some photos of the incident along with a first-person account, tweeting: "I love it when 8 police officers show up at my door and 10 cop cars are outside my house. just another casual Friday evening at the Jenner household. #nbd #EveryonesOk"

Other celebs targeted by fake 911 calls include Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Simon Cowell and most recently Tom Cruise.
