“The gun was loaded with blanks, not live ammunition.” Sadly, just moments before he was died,  Ofner posted photos of the prop guns that would later kill him.

Bliss N Eso confirmed via Facebook on Monday night that they were not on set at the time of the incident.

On Monday afternoon police would not reveal exactly how Ofner was killed. “A scene was being conducted in which the actors were using firearms,” detective inspector Tom Armitt said. “Something has caused those injuries to that man’s chest but how that occurred is now part of our investigation.” What do you think?
