The incident went down in West Hollywood, as the pair were preparing for a recording session at Westlake Recording Studio.

TMZ claims that a few armed men took Usher and Rich's associates by storm, pistol whipping violently at least one bodyguard. Usher was inside the studio and not hurt while Rich was outside when it all happened.

A deputy from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department confirmed to Newsweek that "at approximately 3.30 p.m. on Santa Monica boulevard. three individuals were robbed and there were several shots fired".

It remains unclear if anyone was hit when the suspect opened fire.

Police are investigating the attack and haven't made any arrests, nor identified the suspects.
