Five people shot at Chris Brown gig

Chris Brown was unharmed at a shooting during his latest gig in California.

The Grammy-winning rapper was performing his track Loyal at a private party at San Jose's Fiesta nightclub on January 11 when gunshots rang out, injuring five revellers.

He tweeted "I'm 100" afterwards, telling fans he was uninjured in the shooting, but that tweet was later deleted, according to the San Jose Mercury News and San Francisco Gate.

Police have confirmed that the 25-year-old star was unhurt.

A video posted on Chris' Vine profile, and later deleted, showed him looking at something going on in the crowd during his performance, before shots are heard.

"What's going on over there?" he asked, before being ushered away by security guards.

Mobile phone footage and other footage posted online appears to show the aftermath of the shooting, with people running for the exits or dropping to the ground.

The San Jose Police Department said the five people injured are expected to survive, and added it is still investigating the "motive surrounding the shootings" and "several people have been detained by officers" although no arrests have been made.

Chris, who has spent time in rehab and prison, experienced a shooting at a party in Los Angeles in August 2013, when Death Row Records executive Suge Knight was shot.
