Five people were reportedly shot in the wee hours of Sunday morning near a Chris Brown concert in San Jose, California. The rapper tweeted that he was unharmed, and all five victims are expected to survive.
The San Jose Mercury News reported:
According to San Jose police, gunfire was reported about 1:20 a.m. near the Fiesta nightclub on Monterey Road near Rancho Drive and across the street from the West Wind Capitol Drive-In. Officers arrived to find four people who suffered gunshot wounds, and they were rushed to the hospital. A short time later, another shooting victim walked into a local hospital.
Amateur video of the scene inside the nightclub shows the moment the shots rang out (at about 1:10), at which point the audience and performers all ducked, amidst screams and general mayhem at the back of the venue.
A Vine account purporting to be that of Chris Brown posted video of the performer at the moment the shots were heard:
