House of Lies

Caught In Gang Gunfire

There was shooting in the middle of shooting "House of Lies," TMZ has learned.

Here's how it went down.  This afternoon, the show was on location at Nickerson Gardens housing project in South Central L.A.  Sources on the set tell us ... the location shoot attracted a crowd, which began to swell.  Turns out, members of rival gangs were among the onlookers.

At one point, T.I., Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell had just finished a scene.   The rival gang members began to get aggressive and suddenly shots rang out. 

It's unclear how many members of the cast were still present when shots were fired, but we're told  bodyguards jumped in to protect the cast and crew.

We're told no one was injured.

Cops were called but by then the gang members had dispersed.

We're told the TV production resumed shooting at a different location.

Of course no on was injured. How do hit anyone holding the gun sideways. They look cool doing it though, right?

Maybe your location scout should have gotten out of her Range Rover before wanting to shoot scenes at Nickerson Gardens!

I hope they learned to stay out of Nickerson Gardens, one of the most dangerous places in LA.

That is one of the stupidest places to film on location....EVER! You think that area and most of them around there are dangerous during the day, try going after dark. I assure you even most black people are afraid to get near here!

I bet the producers are giddy with excitement for the unintentional free publicity.

So you go down to the projects with tons of equipment and famous people. start filming and your surprised there was gunfire? LMFAO You would think if they were going there they would expect it and maybe scouted it out a little better. The projects is not a friendly place for most of the general public. What would make them think they would be safe?
