The gangsta-gangsta shit that is sure to be portrayed in the N.W.A biopic won't be Hollywood smoke and mirrors. TMZ is reporting that while filming in Compton, California, a drive-by shooting took place directly in front of the cast and crew members on set. According to the report, a group of guys posted up outside the Compton Courthouse flashed gang signs at a passing car and passengers in the car opened fire. While the cast and crew weren't the targets, the shooting took place dangerously close and one civilian right next to the set was hit, but survived.

The shooting is under investigation by the LAPD but has not been declared gang-related yet. Despite a worried cast and crew, filming will continue to take place as planned in Compton.
