House of Lies

Caught In Gang Gunfire

11/15/2013 4:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


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.

Bunch of savages. If they were smart, maybe one or two could have earned an extra buck as an extra. Oh, nevermind, that requires work and a honest paycheck. Oops. Forget it. Not part of the project moto.

To all haters you guys do not know what you are talking about I lived here for 42 years... Got two college degrees, and working on opening a business of my own... If you don't anyone they wont f*ck with you... Even when it's dark this has become peaceful place, compare to the 70's, 80's, and the early 90's... Now people are always filming over here. With no problems they even get some of the people who live in THE NICKERSON GARDENS to act in them... There are some great things that happen, and come out of the projects... Thank you very much...
