Earlier this morning, Chris Brown was mid-performance at a San Jose nightclub when gunshots rang out around 1:20 a.m. PST. The incident, which was caught on video, happened during his performance of hit, "Loyal" and Brown seems to have noticed something going down just before shots rang out. Five people were reportedly injured during the shooting.

He  was performing at Fiesta nightclub as part of a VIP birthday event, according to Mercury News. Gunfire was reported around 1:20 a.m. near the nightclub. It's not clear if it happened within the space or directly outside, but from the looks of the video captured during the incident, it seems within the club space or directly at its entrance.

TMZ is reporting that four patrons were rushed to the hospital, and one eventually showed up after the incident. Brown was not injured during the incident and all five injured are expected to survive; it's being reported that several patrons were detained following in the incident, as well.

Brown is currently preparing for a national tour that kicks off later this month alongside Trey Songz and Tyga.

We'll continue to update with more details as they become available.
