According to a statement sent to WCNC News by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, fortunately no one was hurt or shot during the tragic occurrence. The club was also swiftly shut down after that.

Omar McCombs, the arrested suspect with a criminal history, was not legally allowed to own a firearm. Robinson’s was fortunate to be in the club’s green room when the frightful incident took place.

“The Office” star went on to explain the situation in more detail on Instagram while reassuring his safety. “It was an active shooter in the comedy club, so they moved us over to this as a concert going and its Big Time Rush.”

“We had to run over here,” he added. “It’s cool. We cool. It was wild. I was in the green room and they’re like ‘everybody get out.’ It was a moment for sure.”

He also praised the Comedy Zone’s security and personnel for taking them to safety immediately in a separate post. “Thank you everyone for your outpouring of support and well wishes.”

“Thank you CMPD for swift action in apprehending the shooter. Hopefully he gets the help he needs. Thanks be to God no one was hurt. Please stay safe everyone.”

Robinson’s two Sunday performances have been rescheduled, and everybody who bought tickets for the original performance on Saturday will get a refund.
