Jennifer Lopez got quite the fright on Sunday night.

The star was on the set of a video shoot in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., when gunshots were reportedly fired nearby, immediately prompting her security to rush her to safety.

Fort Lauderdale Police confirm to E! News that officers responded to a call of shots fired at the northernmost point of the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park parking lot. Lopez and her crew were filming in the southernmost end of the park.

Authorities said that any suspects who may have been involved in the shooting fled before officers arrived at the scene, and that there are currently no known witnesses or reported injuries.

Lopez was in the middle of doing a TV interview on the set when the shots were purportedly heard, and Lopez, who was there with beau Casper Smart, was quickly taken to her vehicle by security.

Entertainment Tonight's Rob Marciano, who was conducting the interview with the former American Idol judge when the shots rang out, later tweeted about the incident.

"BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my JLo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away," he wrote.

"Can hear & see ambulances converging ~400 yards down the street," Marciano added. "Police confirming: 'shots fired. no one hit.' Whew."

Lopez had been in the area filming her new music video with Pitbull, "Live It Up."

E! News has reached out to Lopez's camp for comment.
