Ryan Seacrest has become the latest celebrity targeted by a ''SWATter.''

Police say a hoax 911 call reported armed men were shooting their way into the "American Idol" host's home on Wednesday.

Beverly Hills police say when they arrived they found Seacrest there, but no group of armed men.

After speaking with Seacrest and his security team, the officers left.

Seacrest joins a growing list of celebs "SWATted" in recent months, including Rihanna, Justin Timberlake and the Kardashians.

These prank calls earned the nickname "SWATting" because law enforcement agencies sometimes would send SWAT teams to respond to the false emergencies.
