Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

If you hear the sound of live gunfire and then the screech of tires making a getaway AND you happen to be near Grand Park, there's no reason to panic: NCIS is on the scene.

CBS' NCIS will be filming an action-packed scene at downtown's Grand Park most of the day, according to City News Service. Between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., neighbors have been warned that they might hear gunfire and screeching tires. There will also be a bomb squad and emergency vehicles on scene. Filming is expected to wrap up by 7:30 p.m.

Angelenos—and downtowners in particular—are used to filming around town. Occasionally we're so blasé about the sound of violent scenes being shot around town that it takes us a minute to register when the real thing goes down.
