Actor killed while filming scene for Australian music video

SYDNEY, Australia — An actor was killed Monday while filming a scene featuring several guns for an Australian band’s music video, police said.

The man died at a bar in the Queensland city of Brisbane while filming the video by hip hop group Bliss n Eso. Members of the band were not on the set at the time, the group’s management said in a statement.

During the scene, several actors fired their guns and the actor somehow received wounds to his chest, Queensland Police Detective Inspector Tom Armitt said. No one else was injured.

It was not immediately clear whether the guns were loaded with live ammunition or blanks, Armitt said. Blank cartridges can still cause injuries if fired at close range.

“I can’t tell you whether they are live or real firearms,” Armitt told reporters. “I can’t tell you the type of ammunition that were being used. That will be a subject of the investigation.”

Police did not release the actor’s name.
