Don Cheadle and Rapper TI Caught in Gang Gunfire While Shooting a TV Show

Post By RelatedRelated Post


Acting can be a dangerous job, but not in the ways some might expect.  Actors Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell were reportedly caught in the middle of a gang shooting this week.  It all happened as they were shooting “House of Lies” in South Central Los Angeles this week.   Apparently, those watching them film got into a dispute and shots were fired from rival gang members.

The group was working in the Nickerson Gardens housing projects at the time.  Neither were hurt, but it was definitely a scary process for everyone involved.  By the time the police arrived, the gang members had dispersed.

The only other recognizable cast member on the set was the rapper TI, who has been doing guest appearances on the show.  When the drama slowed down, the group went to another location to finish shooting the series.

Bell wrote on Twitter: “I’m sitting right next to him [Cheadle], he’s definitely not dead.”

  5. How did people get so ignorant?Is it poverty , greed or gangster rap?

  6. It's funny and the hood probably felt it's disrespectful … They go in there to film … and didn't expect anything to transpire ??? Geniuses smh tryin to advertise that life when they ain't even bought it lol they better simulate a location to look like the gardens

  9. I’m trying to think if no investment is comming to the area so people are feeling used and neglected

  10. Peace Family, I am truly thankful to the Creator that no one was injured. Our dear brother Don Cheadle must especially be careful .He,as well as fellow brother actor Chiwetel Ejiofor may be targeted because of the positive roles they chose for the elevation of Black people.

  11. These Brotha’s need to look at the Video, The BlackMan(State of Emergency) on Youtube, because some of us need direction.
