Mike Epps

SHOT FIRED

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."

mike epps has also been approached by the disney channel in relation to a role in the latest episode of planet of the apes due to go into production early 2013 - Epps is slated to take on the role of Tard, leader of a posse of mutant apes who've had their brains amputated and spend the majority of their time drunk in hollywood nightclubs with nothing but semi automatic weapons to amuse themselves with

What a bunch of racist a**holes!!! If you don't like the article, or Mike Epps, don't read or comment. People like the ignorant bigots commenting on this, is exactly why we're stuck in the old days...get over yourselves!!!!!

I was there earlier, so sad it was a nice night and Mike Epps should have been enjoying it rather than acting crazy. Having beef with someone who doesn't like your coedy isn't reason enough to fight people . What a loser!

Blacks!
Wash 'em up,dress 'em up, give them 'em some money, you still can't take 'em out without having them endanger someone's life.
None of 'em can shoot worth a damn. You can't be sure they will shoot themselves or other blacks, they make it unsafe for everyone.
They shoot and scatter, running for the hills, you can't know who the fool is.
Do they ALL hafta act like "rappers?"

Very misleading headline ... So there was a fight at a club that involved some of Mike Epps birthday party guests. Someone in the club tried to break it up by firing a warning shot, and then everyone left.


At this point, it appears this has little (if nothing) to do with Mike Epps, other than he may know some of the fighters ...

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Bunch of wannabe outlaws, that's all they are. Hate to see other people simply having a good time so they have to drag those people down in their own misery. Pathetic.

If I owned a club and anybody with a "posse" showed up they would be denied .
Trouble makers are easy to spot if they have an attitude and swagger and grab their crotches constantly like they need to see if their package is still there send them packing these clubs are putting innocent people at risk by catering to these types.
