SAN DIEGO - Controversial R&B star Chris Brown was scheduled to make a guest appearance at a nightclub in San Diego, less than 24 hours after gunfire erupted at a San Jose club where he was performing.

News of that incident prompted officials at Parq, a new nightclub in the Gaslamp District (map), to increase security for Sunday's sold out event.

Just after 1 a.m. Sunday, gunfire rang out at the Fiesta Restaurant and Nightclub in San Jose while Brown performed.

Moments before the shooting, the 25-year-old singer pointed out folks in the audience who appeared to be getting heated. The announcement was followed by gunshots.


The shooting injured five people, but the victims were reportedly in stable condition. Brown was not hurt.

San Diego police released a statement, "The Chris Brown concert is a private venue. Our patrol staff and specialized teams will be briefed and will be working closely with the venue to discuss responsibilities."

As people lined up to get into Parq Sunday night, patrol cars were seen parked near and around the area along 6th Avenue and Broadway.
