Jennifer Lopez gunshots: During the production of a music video on a beach in Florida, Jennifer Lopez was rushed off the set after gunshots were heard in the background.

Lopez was filming a video with rapper Pitbull in Fort Lauderdale for the video “Live It Up” on Sunday, reported the Miami Herald.

She was also having an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” when shots were heard, reported Fox News.

“BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my JLo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away,” said “Entertainment Tonight” host Rob Marciano on Twitter.

He later tweeted: “Police confirming: ‘shots fired. no one hit.’ Whew.”

Lopez was escorted from the beach to her car safely. A representative said that the singer was “fine” after the incident.

“Fort Lauderdale police officers responded to a call of shots fired at the northernmost point of the Fort Lauderdale beach park parking lot,” Fort Lauderdale Police spokeswoman Detective DeAnna Greenlaw told the New York Daily News. “Jennifer Lopez and her crew were filming in the southernmost end of this park.”

Greenlaw said the suspects fled the scene before police arrived.
