Police converged on the area, but the people involved in the shooting were not found, although police detained several people at the scene.
Jennifer Lopez, 43, was in Fort Lauderdale to shoot the music video for Live It Up, her upcoming collaboration with Pitbull.
She was filming an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the set of her music video when the shots were heard.
Entertainment Tonight‘s Rob Marciano, who was interviewing JLo, reported that “Security scrambled [Jennifer Lopez] away” after the shots rang out.
He tweeted: “BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my JLo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away.”
Rob Marciano added: “Can hear & see ambulances converging ~400 yards down the street.”
Before adding: “Police confirming: <<shots fired. no one hit>>. Whew.”
Security officials said Jennifer Lopez was secure in her vehicle when the incident was reported, but it’s bound to have brought back memories from the time she and then boyfriend P. Diddy were arrested over a shooting at a nightclub in New York in the late ’90s.
JLo is being supported on the shoot by her partner, Casper Smart, 25, who has brought his mother along too.
Prince Michael Jackson struck out on his own as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday night.
Despite those efforts, Michael Jackson’s 16-year-old son found himself the centre of the story on Tuesday evening.
The 30-minute programme featured clips of co-host Brooke Anderson grilling Prince Jackson with questions in between teasers for his first assignment, while he patiently waited for his moment to step into her shoes and test his skills as an interviewer.
With little known about the length of Prince Jackson’s contract, producers were keen to exploit their most high-profile – and their youngest – new celebrity reporter.
Teasers airing before his debut showed the teenager stiffly dressed as if ready to sit for a serious interview, while co-hosts told viewers about ET’s newest addition.
Critics immediately put out their claws – surely a 16-year-old has not earned the credentials to juggle on-air interviews, despite his or her own status as a celebrity or even a studious cinephile, as Prince Jackson described himself.
His banter with Brooke Anderson was awkward, even cringe-worthy, though on par with exchanges between evening news anchors.

Thrusting a teenager in front of cue cards and a glaring red light did little to enhance the story (Prince Jackson’s first assignment would be to interview the cast of Oz the Great and Powerful).
But viewers, and interested fans of the Jackson clan, did get a glimpse into how young Prince sees himself stepping out of his father’s shadow.
“I’ve been raised around stuff like this so it was different being the interviewer instead of the one being interviewed,” he told Brooke.
Prince Michael Jackson refers to his late father with the ET veteran compliments him on his maturity.
“That’s what most of my people say,” he responds.
“That was all thanks to my dad. He raised me right.”
Prince Jackson was just 12-years-old when his father died, leaving him and his two siblings in the care of extended relatives, including their paternal grandmother, Katherine Jackson.
Kirstie Alley admits she developed strong feelings Woody Harrelson while filming sitcom Cheers.
The actress, now 61, had to remind herself she was married to stop the temptation to embark on a passionate affair with Woody Harrelson.
Writing in her memoir, The Art of Men, Kirstie Alley revealed: “He would incessantly insist we sleep together, half joking and half serious.
“We’re not sleeping together, I would say, half wishing I wasn’t married so we could.”
When Kirstie Alley played bar manager Rebecca Howe in Cheers she was married to her second husband, actor Parker Stevenson.
The couple – who have two adopted children together, William True and Lillie Price – eventually divorced in 1997.
Woody Harrelson was not married when he portrayed naive barman Woody Boyd in the bar based comedy series from 1985 to 1993.
Last week, Kirstie Alley admitted John Travolta had been the love of her life.
The actress fell for the actor on the set of their film Look Who’s Talking, which was shot almost 25 years ago, but she couldn’t act on her feelings because she was married to Parker Stevenson at the time.

Kirstie Alley said: “Believe me, it took everything that I had, inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John. And be with John for the rest of my life. [He was the] greatest love of my life.”
This week Kirstie Alley has also claimed she and the late Patrick Swayze, her North and South co-star, were once “in love”.
She told Entertainment Tonight on Monday: “Both of us were married. We did not have an affair. But again, I think what I did was worse. Because I think when you fall in love with someone when you’re married you jeopardize your own marriage and their marriage. It’s doubly bad.”
Kristie Alley insisted she is good friends with Patrick Swayze’s wife of 34 years Lisa Niemi Swayze and was even asked to speak at his funeral after he died of pancreatic cancer in 2009.
Kirstie Alley’s book The Art of Men lifts the lid on the behavior of all the guys she has dated and the famous men she has worked with.
A new behind-the-scenes footage of Whitney Houston filming her forthcoming movie Sparkle shows the singer, who passed away age of 48, looking happy and healthy.
In a new clip featured on U.S. network Entertainment Tonight, presenter Mark Steins also said he had heard Whitney Houston’s voice was “100% back” as he went on set of the film last October and November.
Mark Steins gave his thoughts on interviewing Whitney Houston, who is shown on set performing and interacting with the crew.
He revealed that Whitney Houston didn’t want to be interviewed alone, instead opting to sit side by side with director Salim Akil and co-star Jordin Sparks.
Whitney Houston is shown filming a scene in curlers, but Mark Steins said the singer insisted on changing into a patterned shift dress and putting on make-up.
Wearing a purple dress, Whitney Houston looked fresh and youthful as she chatted with the presenter, who said she looked “healthier and heavier” then he could recall.

And in an eerie foretelling, Whitney Houston animatedly discussed a connection between the movie and the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, where her funeral was held last week.
The legendary singer revealed that in the movie, the church is called the New Hope Baptist Church, where her character sings in the choir.
Whitney Houston added the film’s writers “had no idea” that it was the same name as her own childhood church “I grew up with in New Jersey”.
She was laid to rest in the church last weekend in a moving service.
In between filming scenes in a church, singing the gospel hymn Eyes On The Sparrow, Whitney Houston revealed her distaste for cursing.
Whitney Houston said of refusing to listen to a rap song with explicit lyrics: “I did that with my own daughter. I said, <<We’re not listening to that, no.>>”
Jordin Sparks, the former American Idol winner, who is four years older than Whitney Houston’s own daughter, Bobbi Kristina, recalled her favorite on-set memory of the superstar.
The 22-year-old singer told Access Hollywood: “[Whitney] had an iPod and she’d be blasting gospel, and I’d put on Teach Me How To Dougie or something. She’d say, <<You listen to this?>> and I’d say, <<Yes, I do>>.
“One night we were waiting for the camera change and we all stood up and starting Dougie-ing. It was this crazy moment.
“It was so funny and such an out of body experience. I’m going, <<This is Whitney Houston, regal Whitney Houston>> and there she was, just getting down. It was awesome.”
Whitney Houston’s last performance hits the big screen on August 17 of this year, though it was originally slated for an August 10 release.
The film was inspired by the story of 1960’s girl group The Supremes and is a remake of the 1976 film of the same name starring Aretha Franklin.
The 2012 version of Sparkle takes place in Detroit and is set in the Motown era.
Musical prodigy Sparkle (Jordin Sparks) has to deal with the hardships of becoming a star and keeping her family together, while Whitney Houston plays her struggling mother Emma.
The film also stars Derek Luke, Mike Epps and The Voice judge Cee Lo Green.
It is Jordin Sparks’ début performance as an actress, and it was meant to be the role that re-launched Whitney Houston’s career.
The film will be dedicated to Whitney Houston’s memory.
