Several media outlets are reporting that shots were fired at Chris Brown‘s pre-VMAs party last night at his club in West Hollywood, and that Brown himself was allegedly the intended target. While he escaped uninjured, it is being reported that music producer Suge Knight and two other suffered injuries related to the shooting.

Partygoers have been blowing up Twitter with their accounts of the experience, with one woman going so far as to claim Chris Brown and Justin Bieber were intended targets:

Another witness also backs up the claim that shots were intended for Brown:

Chris Brown himself also took to Twitter to address the situation:

Not sure what he means by “miss me”, but I assume he could be referring to the shots fired “missed” him? It's a pretty cryptic message overall, and doesn't really do much to address the cause of such a frighteningly violent situation.

While details are still emerging, music executive Suge Knight has reportedly suffered multiple gunshot wounds, and two others have apparently been injured as well. Us weekly  reported that around 1:30 a.m., two gunshots were fired in a row and the crowd immediately began to disperse. Security guards quickly rushed to Brown and the rest of his table, and they were soon evacuated.  One eyewitness' account of the incident:

“People were screaming and yelling and most ran out immediately. The floor was covered with glass from everyone dropping their drinks.”

As more details emerge, we'll update this developing story accordingly. Our thoughts are with the injured victims.
