Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene says he was “swatted” at her home at 1 a.m. on Wednesday.
“Last night, I was swatted just after 1 am,” the Republican wrote on Twitter.
“I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County. More details to come,” she added.
The Rome Police Department reportedly responded to a 911 call about a “subject being shot multiple times at an address within the city limits.”
“When officers responded they discovered this was the home of Marjorie Taylor Greene,” said Debbie Burnett, the assistant chief of police.
“She assured the officers there was no issue and the call was determined to be a false call commonly known as ‘swatting,'” Burnett added.
Police allegedly received another call from the suspect, who was speaking through a computer generated voice, saying they were “upset about Mrs. Greene’s political view on transgender youth rights.”
Burnett said there is currently an active investigation into the incident.
A spokesperson for the Congresswoman told the New York Post and Daily Mail that “right now, Congresswoman Greene’s safety is our number one concern.”
“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,” the rep said.
Swatting involves making a prank call to authorities in an attempt to get law enforcement to arrive at a target’s home.
Greene has been a lead critic of the recent FBI search of former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
She filed articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland, saying his “personal approval to seek a search warrant for the raid on the home of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, constitutes a blatant attempt to persecute a political opponent.”
Greene has yet to reveal more details about last night’s swatting.
