Two people have been arrested in regards to a shooting on the set of the Antoine Fuqua-directed, Denzel Washington-led “The Equalizer” sequel.
The incident took place last weekend in Boston when two security guards were shot and wounded. Both survived as the injuries were not life-threatening and the two were released from the hospital shortly after receiving treatment.
The two eighteen-year-old gunmen, who appeared on Snapchat moments before the gunfire and then quickly fled the scene of the crime, were later found and arrested on Thursday.
Both have both been charged with assault with intent to murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, and unlawful possession of ammunition. Lawyers for both of the teens deny the charges.
Police indicate the situation seems to be a random act of violence as opposed to deliberate targeting. Neither the studio or Washington have issued a statement, and the project is currently still on schedule with filming still ongoing.
The incident follows in the wake of the horrific Las Vegas attack last weekend that left 59 people dead and over 500 wounded at the hands of a lone gunman from a hotel room at the Mandalay Bay.
“The Equalizer 2” is scheduled to hit cinemas on August 3rd 2018.
