Things seem to have gotten too real on the set of the N.W.A Biopic. Last week, a drive-by shooting went down near the set of the film in Compton. Reports TMZ: Eyewitnesses tell TMZ … the gunfire erupted outside the Compton Courthouse last week when some neighborhood guys, not actors, flashed gang signs at a passing car. We’re told the gunmen were NOT targeting the crew — but since they were setting up outside the courthouse the bullets came dangerously close. One nearby civilian was hit, and collapsed next to the set … but survived. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. tells us the shooting is under investigation. They have not yet determined if it was gang-related. We’re told filming will continue this week in a rough area of Compton … even though many members of the cast and crew are shaken, and worried about their safety.
More security has been added to the set as the shoot in the Cali streets. The film is still set to release August of 2015.
