One person was shot at Nipsey Hussle's record release party.

(AllHipHop News) A Los Angeles album release party for rapper Nipsey Hussle ended in chaos on over the weekend, after shots were fired, hitting one person in the leg.

The hip-hop star had been celebrating the launch of Victory Lap at the World on Wheels roller skating rink, which he became the owner of last summer when a weapon was fired in the parking lot, sending people inside running for cover.

Police rushed to the scene of the incident in Venice, but the gunman had already escaped and the shooter's victim, who was struck in the thigh, refused to co-operate with cops.

It's not clear if Nipsey had already left World on Wheels by the time of the shooting, but authorities were unable to locate him on the premises as they investigated the crime.

His party wasn't the only event on Saturday to be interrupted by a gun-related scare - fellow rapper Rich the Kid had his performance at Hollywood nightclub Lure derailed after police received reports of a man brandishing a firearm in the parking lot.

Armed cops descended on the area, ordering people to step out of their cars as they searched for the suspect, who was not found.

Rich the Kid's club gig was held as part of the NBA All-Star Weekend celebrations, which took place in Los Angeles this year.
