Chris Brown concert interrupted by gunshots, five wounded

Chris Brown was performing at a San Jose nightclub early Sunday morning when gunshots were fired and injured five people, EW has confirmed.

Brown was performing his hit “Loyal” at Fiesta nightclub when an altercation in an area of the venue resulted in gunshots, said Officer Albert Morales, a spokesman for San Jose Police Department.

“We did respond to an incident at about 1:20 this morning. It was a private party being hosted by Chris Brown, as well as a local DJ. We don’t know if it was a scheduled performance but it was an event where he was in attendance,” Morales told EW.
