A Chris Brown appearance turned tragic when five people were shot near a packed nightclub in San Jose, Calif., on Sunday (Jan. 11).

According to the San Jose Mercury News, it happened around 1:30AM at the Fiesta nightclub where the R&B singer was hosting a VIP birthday event.

Video from the incident shows Brown performing his chart-topping single ‘Loyal’ when at least four gunshots rang out from a distance. Brown was immediately escorted out the venue by his security team amid the chaos.

According to police, four people suffered gunshot wounds and were rush to a local hospital. One shooting victim was able to walk into a hospital on their own. All five people are expected to survive their injuries.

Authorities have no suspects or motive for the attack as they are still interviewing witnesses.

Brown, who was not hurt during the shooting, reportedly went on Twitter to inform his fans that he was okay. “I’m 100,” he allegedly tweeted.

This isn’t the first time Chris Brown was at the center of a nightclub shooting. Last August, Suge Knight was shot several times at a Chris Brown-hosted pre-MTV VMAs party at 1Oak club in Los Angeles.
