It’s just a movie, guys

The upcoming N.W.A. film, which will depict the legendary group’s rise to prominence in the late 80’s and early 90’s, is currently being shot in Los Angeles, and yesterday, a drive-by shooting took place adjacent to the set.  It wasn’t a part of the movie.

TMZ is reporting that the shooting took place because residents of the L.A. neighborhood in which the movie was being shot were flashing gang-signs at the people riding in the car the shooting emanated from.


While LAPD officials have not yet been able to determine whether the shooting was gang-related–which is cited as the reason for the mayhem in TMZ’s report–filming for the movie will continue in the area this week.
