Aaron Taylor-Johnson & Wife Sam's Home Raided by Armed Police After Gun Spotted Inside

The home of Godzilla actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his wife, Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson, was raided by police on Thursday evening (August 28) after a passerby saw a machine gun through the window in London, England.

Armed police surrounded the home of the 24-year-old actor and his 47-year-old director wife in the Primrose Hill area of the city. They were not home at the time of the raid.

“Police were called at 23:40 hours on Thursday by a member of the public, reporting that they had seen from the street, what they thought was a firearm, sitting on a desk by the window of a property,” a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said in a statement (via THR). “Local officers and officers from the Met’s Firearms Unit attended and were let into the property to examine the firearm. It was confirmed that the firearm was a deactivated M16 rifle.”

A spokesperson for the couple said the gun was part of an art piece. “The firearm was located in Sam Taylor-Johnson’s basement studio and has been confirmed as a certified and fully decommissioned M16 assault rifle that was provided to Mrs Taylor-Johnson by the international charity Peace One Day as part of an art project entitled ‘Peace One Day M16’,” her rep told the BBC.
