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.
