Rick Ross and Young Jeezy were reportedly involved in an altercation backstage at the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Funk Master Flex confirmed the “pushing and shoving” going on backstage, taking to Twitter to let his followers know that the altercation was taking place.

He also tweeted that shots were fired on the parking lot, but according to USA Today the Atlanta Police Department reported that no shots were fired during the altercation. Police reportedly responded to a call backstage at the awards show.

No arrests were made and police have not released the identities of those involved in the scuffle.

The altercation – and subsequent police response – abruptly ended the awards ceremony at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, where stars like 50 Cent, T.I., 2Chainz, B.o.B, Pusha-T, Meek Mill, Wale, Los and Rakim strolled the red carpet.

Presenters included RZA, Trina, Anthony Anderson and others, while comedian Mike Epps hosted.

Wiz Khalifa opened the show with a performance of his song “Work Hard, Play Hard,” and other performances included Meek Mill, Rick Ross, 2Chainz T.I., Future, Los, Diddy, French Montana, MGK and others.

LL Cool J introduced artists in a moving tribute to Chris Lighty, which featured Q-Tip, Phife and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Funkmaster Flex, Busta Rhymes and Fat Joe and 50 Cent.

The show will air on BET October 9
