WASHINGTON - Rock star Gene Simmons' home in California was searched by police in a child porn investigation, but the KISS frontman and his family are not suspects in the case, local media reported.

Simmons and his family tweeted about the investigation Thursday night.

"We couldn't be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes. Law enforcement is on it," Gene's wife Shannon wrote on Twitter.

The Los Angeles Police Department said a unit for crimes against children searched the home near Beverly Hills, a local CBS news station reported.

Police said no member of the family was a suspect, the station reported.

Gene Simmons's Twitter account retweeted numerous tweets saying the family was not implicated and that he was on tour at the time.

Cult American rock band KISS is known for its elaborate black and white makeup and was prominent in the 1970s
