MARPLE TWP., Pa. (YC) — Marple Police responded to reports of a person suffering from a gunshot wound early Thursday morning.

Police confirmed the call was unfounded and nobody was shot.

The caller allegedly has been calling police for similar false alarms, known as ‘swatting.’

In 2013, a number of U.S. celebrities became the victims of swatting, including Sean Combs. In the past, there have been swatting incidents at the homes of Ashton Kutcher, Tom Cruise, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Iggy Azalea, Jason Derulo, Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber and Clint Eastwood.

The incident happened just before 10 a.m. on the 2100 block of Kingswood Lane.
