An alleged intruder has been shot and a security guard stabbed in the face at the home of the supermodel Miranda Kerr.

The altercation happened on the property of a multi-million-dollar mansion in an exclusive estate in Malibu, California, on Friday, which multiple news outlets say belongs to the former Victoria’s Secret model Kerr.

According to local station KTLA 5, an alleged intruder reportedly jumped over the fence of the property and was confronted by the security guard.

The Sheriff’s office said an altercation then broke out and the suspected intruder was shot in the head and torso and the security guard was reportedly stabbed just below his eye.

“When the deputies arrived at the residence they found an armed security guard was involved in a physical altercation with an intruder,” Sergeant James Braden of the LA sheriff's department said in a statement.

“During the physical alteration, the intruder stabbed the armed security guard and the armed security guard shot the intruder.

“Both the armed security guard and the intruder were transported to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries. The armed security guard is listed in stable condition and the intruder is listed in critical condition with non-life threatening injuries.”

Police said no occupants of the house were at home of the time of the incident and that the incident did not take place inside the house but on the property. The investigation was ongoing.

In August, Kerr, who is engaged to Snapchat billionaire founder Evan Spiegel, conducted a photo shoot at her residence with Harper’s Bazaar.

She explained she had bought the property in 2014 when she and her former husband Orlando Bloom were deciding where was best to raise their son, Flynn.

“Orlando and I were living in New York and we love it there,” she said.

“But we were considering what the best options were for our son. Orlando owned a place in Malibu and he was saying that he wanted to move here.

“We thought it would be a better lifestyle for Flynn. He could be outside playing year-round, playing in the sand. We could have a garden. I started looking for houses because we wanted to be close as a family.”

Kerr referred to the house as her “sacred space” and said she knew the house was right for her at first sight.

“It wasn’t right on the water so it was protected from the wind and very private,” she said. “I could just see the potential. It felt so right.”

Representatives for Kerr did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
