Police officials told the local newspaper The Sun Sentinel that after an investigation, there was no evidence of a shooting and there were no known witnesses or injuries. The 43-year-old pop singer was unharmed and was inside her vehicle at the time.

Desipte the incident, Lopez said in an interview with "Entertainment Tonight" that filming the video was "fun."

"It was one of the more fun videos that I've ever done," she said. "We had such a good time."
