Drive By Shooting On Set of N.W.A. Movie "Straight Outta Compton"

N.W.A. movie set recently experienced a drive by shooting on set.

According to recent reports, the upcoming N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" just experienced a drive-by shooting in front of the movie crew.
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. [TMZ>
The L.A. County Sherriff's department explains that the shooting is still under investigation and are not sure of the motive of the shooting. Filming is expected to continue this week throughout Compton, California even though many of the cast members and crew were shaken and afraid for their lives.
