The actor shares his thrilling experience when he saw four men shot two victims during his dinner in Brooklyn.
Actor Ethan Hawke is still reeling after witnessing his first hit on the mean streets of Brooklyn, New York - two people were killed while he was dining out. The "Training Day" star was shooting new movie "Brooklyn's Finest" in one of New York's roughest neighborhoods when he stopped to visit a diner with cast and crew - and while he was eating, four men gunned down two victims in a barber shop.
He recalls, "It's not even a joke ... it was a full-blown assassination and they accidentally killed the guy cutting his hair - it was a woman cutting his hair. It was terrible. I stood there, like, an actor in a movie. I kept expecting the AD (assistant director) to go, 'Cut, cut...' The police shut the block down."
Hawke admits he was questioned about the incident - but was a useless witness, "I saw a bunch of hoods - that's what I saw."
