Rome Police Department –

On August 24th at about 1:03 AM Rome Police officers responded to a 911 call reference to 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. She assured the officers there was no issue and the call was determined to be a false call commonly known as “swatting”.

Rome/Floyd 911 received a second call from the suspect who was using a computer-generated voice stating that he/she was upset about Mrs. Greene’s political view on transgender youth rights.

The Rome Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is working in conjunction with the United States Capital Police on this investigation.

This is an active investigation and no further information can be released at this time.
