Chris Brown's VMA party turns violent; gunshots wound 3

 LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Gunshots inside a celebrity-filled Sunset Strip party hosted by Chris Brown wounded three people early Sunday, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman said.

All three victims, two men and a woman, are expected to recover from their gunshot wounds, Deputy Jeff Gordon told CNN.

The shooting happened inside the 1 Oak club on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood at 1:30 a.m., Gordon said.

Brown posted a tweet after the incident: "It's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bulls**t!!!"

Brown, who is still on probation for beating Rihanna on the eve of the 2009 Grammys, was hosting the party as a celebration of the MTV Video Music Awards, which will be held in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Sheriff's investigators are handling the shooting probe and no arrests have been made, Gordon said.

One person inside the club tweeted, "So 1oak just got shut up. Everyone ducked and ran. Walked out of the club with 20 cops pointing rifles at us. Chris Brown was pissed."

Celebrity news website TMZ reported that former rap mogul Suge Knight was among the wounded, but the sheriff's department would not identify the wounded. A video showed a man who appeared to be Knight being treated by paramedics outside of the club.
