For the second day in a row, Rome Police officers responded to a second “swatting” call at the residence of Majorie Taylor Greene. This call was received on what appeared to be a suicide crisis line from an internet chat.

The call came in on August 25, 2022 at about 0253 hours.

Officers responded once again to Mrs. Greene’s home and confirmed this was a second false report.

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

Police narrative:

On Thursday, August 25, 2022, at 0253 hours, Rome/Floyd E-911 received a call about a male possibly shooting his family members and then himself at (edit), the home of Majorie Greene. The male’s name that was given was Wayne Greene.  The call came in as though it was from a suicide crisis center but it was not through a phone, it was from an internet chat. The person who made the call through the chat advised that they “came out as trans-genre and claimed they shot the family”.  They also claimed “if anyone tried to stop me from shooting myself, I will shoot them.”  They also advised that “they would be waiting for us”.

Lt. Smith advised Officer Grover and I go to the location and try to make contact with Ms. Greene.  We arrived and approached the house. Officer Groover went to the front door to make contact.  Ms. Greene came to the door and we altered her with the reason we were there.

The suicide chat line that was used could not get a location due to the person(s) using a VPN.


On August 24, 2022 at about 0103 hours 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 Capital Police on this investigation.

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

CVN has sent an open records request to obtain the call.
