The show was filming in South Central Los Angeles when shots were fired, allegedly the result of a gang-related incident, People magazine reported.
Cheadle, 48, joked on Twitter that he was dead, and Bell followed up with a Tweet saying otherwise.
Holy sh*t, I'm dead (TMZ)— Don Cheadle (@IamDonCheadle) November 16, 2013
I’m sitting right next to him, he’s definitely not dead. “@IamDonCheadle: Holy sh*t, I’m dead (TMZ)”— Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) November 16, 2013
Bell followed up with a photograph, joking that perhaps Cheadle was now a zombie.
