Celebrities scrambled for the exits early Saturday morning when gunshots rang out at an Atlanta party hosted by Jermaine Dupri and Sean "Diddy" Combs. A security guard suffered minor injuries when his arm was grazed by a bullet but no one else was hurt.

"I'm sad this incident happened because it interrupted a beautiful and loving party. But I'm happy none of my people or friends got hurt. And the party continues," Dupri told People.

Held at Club Dreams, the bash kicked off Dupri's third annual So So Def Summerfest Weekend, and was attended by Usher, Nelly, Gabrielle Union, Regina King, Larenz Tate and approximately 3,000 others.

The festivities turned ugly around 3:30 a.m. when guests reportedly balked at being charged an additional fee by security to enter the VIP section, said DeKalb County police spokesman Marcus Hodge. That's when a male patron pulled out a gun and started firing away. Police emptied the venue but no arrests have been made.

A representative for So So Def Summerfest Weekend called the shooting "an isolated incident."
