Beleaguered 25-year-old R&B singer, Chris Brown, was the target of another shooting this past weekend, during a club performance, ahead of his forthcoming tour. Brown was performing in San Jose, California at the Fiesta night club, when shots rang out during his set, abruptly ending the show.
Initially Brown thought the noise was club goers enjoying themselves, until it dawned on him the commotion was due to gunshots. Security quickly pulled the singer off stage, protecting him from injury. 5 people were shot in the arms and legs. They were transported to a local hospital.
This is the second club shooting to happen to Brown in the past few months. In August 2014, Brown was shot at by unnamed assailants during a pre-MTV VMA Awards party in Los Angeles. Notorious former Death Row Records music executive, Suge Knight, was shot 5 times in the stomach, but survived.
