Filming for Jennifer Lopez Video Halted by Gunshots

In the evening hours of Sunday, May 5, 2013 filming for Jennifer Lopez's latest video was halted in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as gunshots were heard ringing through the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park where J-lo and Rapper Pitbull were working. The bikini clad singer was quickly escorted away from the southernmost portion of the park where the video was being filmed after three shots were fired north of the location. Lopez was taken to her trailer by her boyfriend, Casper Smart, as security teams scurried to secure the premises. When police officials arrived on the scene, eyewitnesses insisted they saw the person responsible for firing the gun.

Entertainment Tonight's Rob Marciano was the first to report the incident to Twitter with a mid-interview Tweet. It read: "BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my JLo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away."

Lopez and Pitbull were filming the video for their latest collaboration, a single titled "Live It Up" at the time of the incident.
