Producer and founder of Death Row Records Suge Knight was hit in the stomach and arm, reported TMZ. He was one of three people shot and at least one was in critical condition. Witnesses heard four shots in total, the website reported.
Knight was said to have left the club unaided but was helped into an ambulance by police.
Dramatic videos posted by Instagram users appeared to show partygoers being told to get on the floor in the aftermath of the shooting.
Social media users outside of the club also reported that it was shut down by police.
Justin Bieber and other musicians are reported to have been attending the party before the shooting took place.
Chris Brown was hosting the party to promote new album 'X', which is set to be released next month.
