CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – The family of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg was "swatted" Tuesday morning, prompting deputies to respond to their Parkland home, according to WPLG, Local 10 News.
A call came into the Broward Sheriff's Office claiming a hostage situation at the home.
Coral Springs Fire Rescue arrived at the scene to find there was no hostage situation and the call was a prank.
Hogg was not home at the time of the incident and is currently in Washington with his mother to accept the RFK Human Rights award.
In a phone call with Local 10 News, Hogg sounded off on the massive law enforcement presence at his home after the prank call.
"I think it's really a distraction from what we're trying to fix here, which is the massive gun-violence epidemic in this country," Hogg told Local 10 News reporter Liane Morejon.
