SWATTED: False Claim Of Hostage Situation Draws Massive Police Response To Home Of David Hogg

Fort Lauderdale’s ABC affiliate reports:

The family of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg was “swatted” Tuesday morning, causing police to respond to their Parkland home. A call came into the Broward Sheriff’s Office claiming a hostage situation at the home in the 7800 block of Northwest 122nd Way.

Coral Springs Fire Rescue arrived at the scene to find there was no hostage situation and the call was a prank. Hogg was not home at the time of the incident and is currently in Washington, DC with his mother to accept the RFK Human Rights award.

Sky 10 was over the home as units were staged outside as a precaution. BSO responded with multiple crews and a police helicopter. Swatting is the action of making a prank emergency call to bring about a response of armed law enforcement officers.

Obviously this crime was committed by an NRA supporter.
