Police investigating ‘swatting’ call directed at Marjorie Taylor Greene’s home

Authorities say they are investigating a 911 call that claimed a shooting was taking place at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) home early Wednesday morning.

The Rome Police Department in northwest Georgia said in a statement that officers responded to a 911 call at 1:03 a.m. claiming an individual was shot multiple times at Greene’s house. 

“She assured the officers there was no issue and the call was determined to be a false call commonly known as ‘swatting,’” the statement read.

Officials said they received a second call from the suspect, who was using a computer-generated voice, saying they were upset about Greene’s view on transgender youth rights.

The lawmaker has been an outspoken opponent of transgender rights and last week introduced a bill to make gender-affirming care a felony.

The Rome Police Department said they are investigating the incident alongside the U.S. Capitol Police.

“For safety reasons, the USCP does not discuss potential security measures for members or any potential investigations,” Capitol Police said.

Greene first revealed the incident in a tweet on Wednesday morning.

“Last night, I was swatted just after 1 am,” she tweeted. “I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County. More details to come.”

When asked for further comment, Greene’s office called it a “political attack.”

“Right now, Congresswoman Greene’s safety is our number one concern,” her office said in a statement. “Late last night, she was a victim of a political attack on her family and home. Whoever who committed this violent crime will face the full extent of the law.”

Kandiss Taylor, a Georgia Republican who received 3.4 percent of the vote in the state’s May gubernatorial primary, also said she was swatted last month.
