The NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton is currently being filmed in L.A., but over the weekend, life really imitated art.

According to TMZ, the NWA cast was filming on the steps of the Compton courthouse when a gunmen began shooting, drive-by style.

The gunmen allegedly took offense to men who were not affiliated with the movie, throwing up random gang signs.

Universal Pictures apologizes for NWA biopic casting call – but is it enough?

No cast members were hurt, but one bystander was wounded by a stray bullet.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has yet to say if the shooting was gang related. Straight Outta Compton will resume its filming schedule at a different location next week.
