A star-studded event hosted by Jermaine Dupri in Atlanta ended with thousands of patrons fleeing after a gun was discharged early Saturday morning (August 2).

According to reports, gunshots rang out at around 3:30 a.m. at the Dreams night club for an event that kicked off Dupri’s So So Def Summerfest weekend, with celebrities such as Diddy, Usher, Nelly, actresses Gabrielle Union and Regina King, and actor Larenz Tate, all in attendance.

DeKalb County Police spokesman Marcus Hodge tells local media that an argument took place between bouncers and patrons inside the night club because of a double entry charge. They say that some guests became angry when they learned they had to pay twice — once to get into the club, and another time if they wanted entry to the VIP section.

“They started pushing to get into the VIP section. Security came to calm it down and an altercation broke out,” Hodge said. “More security came over … and that’s when someone brandished a gun and … shot one of the security officers in the arm.”

The gunfire resulted in one security guard being grazed in the elbow. He is fine. None of the celebrities in attendance were injured.

“I’m sad this incident happened because it interrupted a beautiful and loving party,” Dupri said in a statement. “I’m happy none of my people or friends got hurt. And the party continues.”

So far, no arrests have been made, and the gun has not been found.
