The unknown prankster has hit again: Chris Brown’s Hollywood Hills home was swatted after someone called the cops to report an incident involving a gun, it has emerged.

This is the third incident of this type in almost as many days, with Tom Cruise and the Kardashians going through a similar experience these past days.

“Cops raced to Chris Brown's Hollywood Hills home Monday afternoon, after someone called 911 and reported a domestic incident involving a gun, but we're told it was all a prank,” TMZ reports.

The MO was similar to the other two cases, even leading to police dispatching a SWAT team and many officers on the scene.

“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the caller claimed a mother and father were in a fight and the father went to another room in the house to get a gun. At that point the caller hung up, never mentioning it was Chris Brown's house,” the same media outlet says.

Obviously, when the police arrived at the location, they found no evidence of a dispute or a gun – because it was all a prank. The singer was not at home when this went down.

As we also reported at the time, the same happened to Tom Cruise and Bruce and Kris Jenner, but also to many other celebrities as well.

Police are working hard to track down the prank caller who is wasting taxpayers’ money and officers’ time.

After Bruce and Kris and their two daughters were told to vacate the house in order for the cops to conduct an investigation (they were looking for a caller inside a closet and armed assailants, possibly victims too, from what the caller said), Kim took to Twitter to urge whoever was making these pranks to stop.

“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!” she said, adding that she hoped the prankster would be apprehended before it wasn’t too late.
