Hollywood detectives from the L.A.P.D. are investigating a hoax call at the home of Ashton Kutcher located on Arrowhead Drive.
According to L.A.P.D., officers were advised that there were individuals inside the location with guns and explosives, and that several people had been shot.
The on scene investigation determined the call was a hoax.
Hollywood detectives immediately launched an investigation to determine the origin of the call.
Their preliminary investigation revealed the call was a “swatting” incident, a term used to describe how computer hackers utilize their skills to place false emergency calls of serious crimes in progress to law enforcement and fire dispatch centers, thus causing a large number of first responders.
Ashton Kutcher's rep has yet to issue a statement.
