Steve Bannon’s Washington, D.C., residence was likely “swatted” on Thursday night.
The Metropolitan Police Department told Fox News that it responded to a shooting call on Thursday night at 7:17 p.m. where Steve Bannon’s residence is located on Capitol Hill.
After an investigation, it was determined that no shots were fired, and a spokesperson for the police department said that there is no active threat to the community.
Bannon’s home was apparently “swatted” on July 8, as someone called 911 and reported that a gunman was inside a Capitol Hill home that was revealed to be Bannon’s, according to the New York Post.
“Swatting” is when an individual makes a false police report to get police to raid the home of someone who is innocent.
