As Mike Epps was celebrating his birthday at a Hollywood nightclub recently, a scuffle broke out between members of his entourage and other patrons. As the altercation began to escalate, someone fired a gun in the venue, this according to law enforcement sources close to the situation.
Several officers rushed to the scene of Tru Nightclub with weapons drawn in an attempt to sort out the chaos. Sources say that a warning shot was fired after the verbal arguments began and the club-goers, including Epps, rushed to the exits of the venue. Thankfully, there were no serious injuries during the ruckus.
A witness who was present at the time of the incident says Epps was only in the club for a short period of time before the shot was fired. The witness says the comedian/actor fled to his car and left the scene in great haste. Law enforcement is currently investigating the matter.
