An actor has been killed while filming a scene which featured guns for an Australian hip-hop group's music video.

The man died at a bar in the Queensland city of Brisbane while filming the video for Bliss n Eso.

Members of the band were not on set at the time, the group's management said.

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 is not immediately clear whether the guns were loaded with live ammunition or blanks, Mr 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," Mr 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.
