Some of the biggest names in show business and Wall Street ducked for cover when a shootout left four people wounded outside the Los Angeles restaurant hosting a post-show party for Justin Bieber.

The guests at the star-studded event included Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos, his TV host girlfriend Lauren Sánchez, Hamilton actor Anthony Ramos and NFL Hall-of-Famer Tony Gonzalez.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Bieber’s wife, Hailey Baldwin, was at the event,along with Drake, Khloe Kardashian and Tobey Maguire.

The shots rang out in the early hours of Saturday morning outside The Nice Guy restaurant, striking and injuring four men ages 60, 19, 20 and 22, LAPD Officer Lizeth Lomeli said. Their names were not released.

Showbiz site TMZ quoted witness who said the violence erupted after an altercation involving rapper Kodak Black.


Law enforcement sources told NBC News that Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, was among the people shot and injured. A message to his publicist at Atlantic Records has not been returned.

Lomeli said she didn’t have immediate information on the fourth victim.

No suspect has been identified, she said.

The party followed Bieber’s private concert at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood as part of a Super Bowl-week party dubbed “Homecoming Weekend.”
