During Nightclub Brawl

Someone fired a gun inside a Hollywood nightclub during a showdown between Mike Epps posse and other clubbers -- this according to law enforcement sources.

Cops with really big guns (see video above) -- rushed to Tru nightclub just after midnight, responding to a call that a shot was fired inside the club, where the "Next Friday" actor was celebrating his birthday.

According to law enforcement sources, a fight had broken out between Epps' camp and other clubgoers when someone pulled out a gun and fired a warning shot.

We're told everyone in the club ran for the doors, including Epps, who then fled the scene. No one was seriously injured ... but two women who were inside the club say they were trampled by panicked clubbers who raced for the exits.

Another witness who was inside the club tells us, "Everybody scattered, everybody started fighting and everything." The witness says Mike had just arrived to the party when the gun went off ... and at that point the actor jumped in his car and left.

Cops are currently investigating, and would like to speak with Epps to sort out what happened.

TMZ shot footage of Mike arriving to party minutes before the shooting -- and he told us his birthday wish ... a "big booty girl."

That's what happens when you have thugs in nightclubs; they tend to start fights and whip out guns. Anyone who goes to these places takes their chances. I bet the rest rooms do a big business in drugs.

I'm sorry people. I don't mean to be/sound racist but seriously, does this surprise you? Why don't these people just stay in the ghetto if they're going to continue to act like that's where they are.

It's a norm for shot's fired at a black guys birthday party. What's not the norm is they actually scattered.

You can take the guys out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the guys. Do you really need to take guns to a nightclub? That's the problem today, people can't go out to have fun, they have to fight.

Some of u need a reality check..every race plays a part in some kind of crime, unfortunately blacks do this, while whites do the unthinkable...schools, novies theaters, killing their own family, being traders to their country, blowing up buildings ( Timothy Mcfay),chopping up people, kidnapping little white kids (that's sicking) name one black serial killer...I'm not a racist and not here to call anyone names because what u say about my race, it don't faze me at all, it just shows how immature u are

White people really need to look in the mirror and see they are the most thuggery race of all. Black people dont eat people. One person below said we endanger other people's life. Only in the news do you see white people shooting up schools, theater and molesting kids. Please stop trying to talk about other races when white people put the C in crazy
