A stabbing has taken place near Sandra Bullock's movie set for her new film "The Heat." Police have reported that one man was killed and two others were injured when a fight broke out just a block from where Bullock's movie was filming. The incident comes after a Boston city bus crashed into the set recently in an unrelated accident.
"The Heat" is Sandra Bullock's new police buddy movie, and was recently filming in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood. It has been reported by police that on Tuesday a block away from where the movie was filming an argument broke out between four men in a Social Security Administration office.
That fight spilled out into a nearby parking lot outside, where it is believed the stabbings occurred. One of the men was killed in the stabbings, and two of the three others were injured. All the victims are aged between 17 and 21, and the injured victims are in a stable and non-life-threatening condition.
An officer working on the set of the movie reportedly helped Boston police chase down the main suspect in the killing.
Following the incident work on the film stopped for a short time as police hunted the suspect, and the injured were given medical assistance.
"The director took the bullhorn and called everyone together," onlooker Cara Lisa Berg Powers told the Independent. "He said three people were stabbed and one of them had died. People were stunned and then the crowd broke up."
It is believed production crew have said they have no plans to increase safety measures on the set and see the incident as an unfortunate isolated incident.
This stabbings come just a day after a city bus crashed into a parked truck involved with the movie on Monday. In that accident about 15 people on the bus were treated for minor injuries.
"The Heat" stars Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock as well as Melissa McCarthy. Bullock will play an uptight cop who forms an alliance with an FBI agent to capture a highly sought-after mob boss.
