The new year is not off to a great start for Chris Brown. The R&B superstar was hosting an event at a San Jose nightclub early Sunday morning when gunshots rang out.
According to the San Jose Mercury News, the shooting happened at 1:20 a.m. near San Jose’s Fiesta nightclub, where Brown was performing at “Capricorn Bash” hosted by San Francisco hip-hop station 106 KMEL. Five people were shot and wounded, while Brown escaped injury.
“I’m 100,” he later tweeted (and deleted).
Four people were rushed to the hospital after suffering gunshot wounds. Shortly after, another shooting victim walked into a local hospital. Police say all five injured are expected to survive.
In the cell phone footage (via TMZ), Brown can be see wincing before his security team ushers him away. Pandemonium ensues as clubgoers rush to the exit.
Several people were detained in the aftermath of the shooting, but it’s unclear if anyone was arrested.
Brown was hosting a pre-VMA event at 1OAK in West Hollywood in August when shots rang out, wounding three people including Suge Knight.
The “Loyal” singer is set to embark on his “Between the Sheets Tour” with Trey Songz on Jan. 28.
