Jonas Brothers take cover upon hearing gunshot at Aventura golf course

Police say wildlife, not singers, intended targets of pellet gun shooting

AVENTURA, Fla. – Two of the Jonas Brothers were forced to take cover when they heard what sounded like bullets flying past them while they were playing golf in Aventura, according to a report later confirmed by police.

Brothers Nick and Kevin Jonas, along with fellow musician Jordan McGraw and drummer Jack Lawless, were playing golf at Turnberry Isle Country Club when they heard a loud pop and took cover moments before something struck the water just a few feet away from them, a witness told DailyMail.com.

Aventura police Detective Carlos Rivas told Local 10 News the brothers were not the intended targets of Friday's incident. Rather, Rivas said, someone appeared to be shooting wildlife from a nearby condominium building.

Rivas said police believe it was a pellet gun used to shoot at the animals.

Nobody was hurt, but the singers filed a police report.

Rivas couldn't confirm which of the brothers were involved.

The Jonas Brothers performed a concert later that night at the BB&T Center in Sunrise.
