Comedian and actor Craig Robinson had to cancel a performance at a North Carolina comedy club after a gunman opened fire at the venue.

A man opened fire in The Comedy Zone Saturday night, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. Police said the unknown suspect was arrested and no one was injured.

Robinson, who is known for his roles in the TV show “The Office” and movies “Hot Tub Time Machine” and “Pineapple Express,” said he was in the club’s green room at the time of shooting.

The comedian described the situation in a video on his Instagram account.

“I’m performing at The Comedy Zone in Charlotte, North Carolina. There was an active shooter in the comedy club,” he said.

Robinson said the club was moving him to the next room, the Metro Credit Union Amphitheater, where the band played Big Time Rush. The band can be heard in the background of Robinson’s video.

“Again, there’s an active shooter at the club I was at,” he said, adding, jokingly, “Big Time Rush to the rescue.”

He said he wished fans could see where he was as the chaos unfolded.

“I’m cool. I’m safe. It was just wild. I was in the green room and they said, ‘Everyone is leaving,'” Robinson recalled. “It was wild. It was definitely a moment.”
