Rushed to safety: Jennifer Lopez was bundled away from the sound of gunshots on the set of her new music video in Fort Lauderdale in Florida on Sunday
The 43-year-old singer was in Fort Lauderdale to shoot the music video for Live It Up, her upcoming collaboration with Pitbull.
Lopez was filming an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the set of her music video when the shots were heard.
ET's Rob Marciano, who was interviewing the star, reported that 'Security scrambled [Lopez] away' after the shots rang out.

He added: 'Can hear & see ambulances converging ~400 yards down the street.'
Before adding: 'Police confirming: 'shots fired. no one hit.' Whew.'
Security officials said the star 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.

The singer was at the now-closed Club New York with her then-boyfriend Combs in December 1999 when shots rang out and the pair fled the scene.
The car in which they were traveling was pulled over by police, who retrieved a stolen handgun from the vehicle. After the subsequent trial, Combs walked free while his associate Shyne went to prison, a civil suit was filed in 2008 by Natania Reuben, who had been shot in the face.
J-Lo is being supported on the shoot by her partner, Casper Smart, 25, who has brought his mother along too, and with her floppy hat and lounge trousers... it's clear to see that she's easily inspired by her daughter-in-love's style.
She also sports long chestnut locks, rather like the superstar.

It was recently announced that the former American Idol judge would be returning to the show for the first time since leaving at the end of last season.
Jennifer will perform the Live It Up single on the grand finale of the show.
However, the star was also the subject of rumours that she was being lined up to replace Mariah Carey as a judge in the line-up after Mariah received criticism for her lacklustre judging style.

A representative for U.S. network Fox was forced to deny the report, saying: 'This is just another ridiculous Idol judge rumour, likely started by talks of Jennifer performing on the finale.'
Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe added: 'I have not been included in any conversation regarding replacing Mariah with Jen this season.'
However, the rumours were brought to the forefront again last week by Nicki Minaj, who tweeted: 'All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that.'
