According to Officer Albert Morales, the shooting took place at the Fiesta Nightclub at 3840 Monterey Highway. Police say the sold-out event was a private party being hosted by Grammy-winner Chris Brown.
Videos posted to YouTube and other social media pages show the moment when the shooting took place. In onevideo, you see Brown singing as shots rang out and people in the crowd ducked down. The music continued for a short time, until gunshots started up again. Other cellphone video posted online by fans appears to show Brown wincing as the shots rang out nearby, then being ushered away by others.
