Real-Life Gunfire At House of Lies Filming Location (PHOTO)

Truth rating: 10

There was real-life gunfire where “House of Lies” had filmed in South Central Los Angeles on Friday.

Stars Kristen Bell and Don Cheadle and guest star T.I. finished shooting a scene at the Nickerson Gardens housing project before the shots rang out.

A rep for Showtime tells Gossip Cop that the actor and crew “were not there at the time of the shooting. They had already moved to another location and were not in danger at any time.”

TMZ says the incident erupted between rival gang members, who were among the spectators gathered to watch the filming.

Bell and Cheadle took to Twitter Friday night to humorously assure fans they were safe.

“Holy sh*t, I’m dead (TMZ),” tweeted Cheadle, to which Bell wrote, “I’m sitting right next to him, he’s definitely not dead.”

The actress then posted the photo above right, writing, “I am like 99% sure he’s not dead…wait a min… #zombiedon.”

We’re glad to hear everyone is okay.
