Less than hour later, cops went to a home over a report of a stabbing ... and found victims 5 and 6. Plus, a girl claims she was beat up and robbed in the bathroom.

Exclusive Details

Adam DeVine Home Break InAdam DeVine lost more than a vehicle during a break-in at his home last weekend ... there's also an antique gun missing ... according to our DeVine family sources. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, DeVine's L.A. home was broken into over the weekend and the crooks made off with his brand new truck. We're told there was no surveillance video and right now police have no leads. 

DeVine family sources say they are most upset about cops finding an empty gun case ... meaning one or more of DeVine's weapons was also jacked. We're told DeVine has an antique pistol in his collection that his parents bought for him in Deadwood, SD and he's pretty sentimental about it.

The "Workaholics" and "Modern Family" star is clearly pissed ... tweeting, "Luckily it's just stuff and no one was hurt but it just sucks that I work so hard to buy cool stuff and you just steal it because you have no ambition and are too stupid to earn enough money to buy nice things."

022815_ti_shooting_launch_v3Gunshots rang out during a college event headlined by T.I. and Jeezy -- and the crowd scattered in chaos.

The rappers were playing at a day party in Charlotte when someone in the crowd fired what sounded like 2 shots. Police tell us two people suffered non-life threatening injuries ... and both were hospitalized.

Cops say no one's been arrested. They do not have a suspect yet.

Although a T.I. song was playing when the shots were fired ... we're told it was just a track -- T.I. had already performed and was not on stage. Jeezy and Yo Gotti -- who had also performed -- were in the V.I.P. section at the time of the shooting.

We've spoken to T.I.'s manager ... and he says T.I. was ushered safely out of the building. We're told he wasn't involved in the shooting. Jeezy and Gotti were also uninjured.

The show was an event to celebrate the C.I.A.A. basketball tournament.

Benzino

Claims There Were No Drugs in His Car

... Only the Police Car

2/12/2015 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021215_benzino_launchBenzino's arrest for drug possession had nothing to do with pot being found in his flashy Maserati -- instead, he says the drugs were in the police car in which he got hauled off to jail.

TMZ obtained the police report from his Atlanta arrest, and it says after Benzino was placed in the back of the patrol car ... the police found a small amount of pot on the seat. Cops say the pot wasn't there before.

The officer says he then checked Benzino's waistband and found a small amount of marijuana residue there, and on the fingertips of his right hand.

Benzino and his attorneys released a video (which kinda looks like a hostage situation) ... claiming the weed was in the cop car before he got there -- even though the police report clearly makes it seem like Benzino dumped it from his waistband. 

Fun fact: The arresting officer uses a "Gain" laundry detergent air freshener ... which he says wasn't strong enough to mask the pot smell in the back seat.

EXCLUSIVE

020615_chris_brown_launchChris Brown has cops on high alert these days ... and an anonymous tip that the passenger in his car had a gun was enough for L.A.'s finest to spring into action.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the LAPD got a call from someone saying Chris' passenger was carrying a gun.  Chris was already inside Sayer nightclub in Hollywood, but the cops were able to coral the friend, detain him and search Chris' Lambo.  They found nothing.

Chris was attending TI's pre-Grammy party when it went down.  Cops are well aware trouble sometimes finds him.  You'll recall he was performing at a VMA party at 1OAK last Summer when shots rang out and Suge Knight was hit 6 times.  Last month 5 people were shot when Brown was performing in San Jose.

On the bright side, Brown tweeted Friday he's completed his community service in the Rihanna case.

Dan Bilzerian

Dan Bilzerian is the bomb when it comes to plea bargaining, because we've learned he's been cleared of felony bomb-making charges.

TMZ broke the story ... Bilzerian was arrested at LAX in December for allegedly possessing explosives with the intent to make a bomb. He was charged with 2 felonies, including possession of a component of an explosive with the intent to make a bomb.  

But the notorious playboy cut a deal, with the help of mega-lawyers David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld. The felonies were dismissed and Bilzerian pled no contest to a misdemeanor -- failing to extinguish a fire in the open.  

Bilzerian gets no jail time and no firearms restrictions. He had to pay $20K for blowing up his own tractor trailer. The reason he has to pay is because he blew the truck up on public land so the money will be used for cleanup.

I Don't Fly Loaded ...

Carry-On Gun Was an Accident

1/29/2015 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Benzino Gun ArrestIt may be difficult to mistake a MAC-10 for a MacBook Pro ... but former "Love and Hip Hop" star Benzino says his recent airport arrest was just a tech inspired accident.

Benzino tells us he stores his gun at home in a laptop bag -- unsafe, we know -- and when he left for the airport Tuesday night, the producer forgot to take his 9 millimeter out of the luggage. 

The reality star says he bought the gun last year after he was shot on the way to his mom's funeral procession ... but he doesn't carry it around at all times.

Benzino adds, "This is an unfortunate situation that was a huge honest mistake and I will always check from now on exactly where it is." 

Maybe he should take a gun safety class as well.
