It’s not always a good thing when life imitates art…such is the case when a drive-by shooting occurred on the set of the N.W.A. film, Straight Outta Compton.
According to TMZ, “gunfire erupted outside the Compton Courthouse last week when some neighborhood guys, not actors, flashed gang signs at a passing car.”
Although the gunmen weren’t targeting the crew, the bullets came dangerously close and even hit a civilian who was standing nearby. The person collapsed, but survived.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. says that the shooting is under investigation, and even though it’s pretty obvious, they’re being cautious in saying it was gang-related.
The cast and crew were obviously shaken up, but filming has continued. Ice Cube posted a picture from the set on Instagram yesterday saying, “Ice Cube in #straightouttacompton August2015.”
The F. Gary Gray directed film stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. as Ice Cube, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E and Aldis Hodge as MC Ren.
