Five Shot During Chris Brown Fiesta Club Appearance
Five people were shot during a nightclub party hosted by Chris Brown on Saturday. The singer was performing at a San Jose venue when gunfire suddenly rang out. Check out the scary video below.
Brown was hosting Fiesta nightclub’s Capricorn Bash with a crowd of hundreds, reportedly including on-and-off girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Brown was singing “Loyal” when the shots were fired around 1:20 a.m. local time, sending partiers racing for the exits. A San Jose police spokesperson tells Gossip Cop that the gunfire took place both inside and outside the venue. Cops arrived on scene to find four people injured, who were then rushed to the hospital. A fifth victim had left the area, but later went to a hospital as well. All of the victims are expected to survive, but the exact injuries have not been released. Several people were detained in the aftermath, but as the preliminary investigation is still ongoing, no suspects or motive have been named yet.
Gossip Cop confirms Brown and his entourage are not believed to have been involved, aside from simply being present during the frightening incident. In footage posted on social media, Brown is seen on stage when a quick pop-pop-pop is heard, leading to screams and scrambling. Seconds later, more shots are fired, causing even more panic and chaos. After the club is largely emptied out, a fire alarm rings as a few people remain amid overturned furniture and broken glass. Gossip Cop is told there were about 700 people inside the club, with another 150 outside at the time of the incident.
Brown has not mentioned the altercation on social media, aside from a since-deleted tweet in which he assured fans he was not hurt. Gossip Cop has reached out for comment. We’ll have updates. Warning: The videos below are unsettling.
