A SWAT team descended upon Justin Bieber's home in Calabasas, Calif., on Wednesday, responding to a 911 call that turned out to be a hoax.

Citing officials, the L.A. Times reports that the emergency call was transmitted around 1:40 a.m. through a TTY device generally used by the deaf and hearing-impaired to type text over the phone. The message, purportedly dispatched from inside Casa Bieber, reported there was someone with a weapon.

When armed police deputies arrived on the scene, people at the property said they never contacted 911.
