Los Angeles, Jan 20 (IANS) Somebody played a trick on Kim Kardashian's family by calling up police and claiming a shooter was in their house and that they heard a gun being fired.
The reality TV star's family was taken aback when they found heavily armed officers at their doorsteps.
Kim's mother Kris, step-father Bruce and sisters Kendall and Kylie became the victims of the incident Friday, reports femalefirst.com.
After hearing about it, Kim, who is currently in the Ivory Coast in Africa, blasted the prank caller on her Twitter and posted: "Just got a call from my mom telling me about this prank call that someone was shot in their home and 15 SWAT team and three helicopters showed up!"
"These prank calls are not funny. People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out how is behind this. It's dangerous and not a joke," she posted.
The Kardashian family are not the first celebrity victims of such a prank.
Police were called to Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills' home Thursday by a prank caller who claimed an armed robbery was taking place, but the cops found no crime had been committed.
A 12-year-old child also previously targeted Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber's homes in a series of elaborate prank.
