Indiana police shoot at actor playing bank robber
An investigation has been launched after a US police officer shot at an actor playing a bank robber.
Indiana state police said officers in Crawfordsville were responding to a report of a possible robbery at Backstep Brewing on Tuesday evening when they encountered actor Jim Duff.
Duff was wearing a ski mask and carrying a gun while leaving the brewery with his back to the officers.
Police told him to drop the gun, but Duff turned toward them and an officer fired a shot that missed Duff.
A police spokesman said Duff dropped the gun, pulled off his mask and told officers they were on a movie set.
He said the production company and the brewery did not notify them or other businesses before filming.
