Jennifer Lopez rushed off video set after gunshots

Jennifer Lopez was rushed off set while shooting a new music video in Florida on Sunday (05May13) after gunshots were reportedly fired nearby.

The singer/actress was in the middle of an interview with news channel Entertainment Tonight's Rob Marciano on the set at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park when shots rang out.

Lopez, who had been in the area filming the promo for her track Live It Up with rapper Pitbull, was immediately taken to safety by her security team who escorted the star into her vehicle before local police arrived on the scene.

Marciano later took to Twitter.com to inform fans about the incident, writing, "BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my JLo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away... Can hear + see ambulances converging 400 yards down the street... Police confirming: 'shots fired. no one hit.' Whew."

In a statement, Fort Lauderdale Police Department spokeswoman Detective DeAnna Greenlaw said officers attempted to investigate the incident but there appeared to be no evidence of a shooting, no witnesses and no injuries.
