CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (WLFI) — Body camera footage has been released in the shooting involving a movie set in Crawfordsville.

The Crawfordsville Police Department released the video Monday.

The incident happened last Tuesday when somebody called in a suspected robbery at a brewing company on North Green Street.

As News 18 reported, a man wearing a ski mask and carrying a gun exited the bar with his back to the officers.

Police said he was told to drop the gun. That's when the man turned around and police fired, fearing that their lives were in danger.

The man then dropped the gun and pulled off the mask, informing the officers that they were on a movie set.

Police said that the gun was a prop and the rest of the production crew was inside the bar during the confrontation.

Police said they were never told about the filming plans beforehand.

The prosecutor has reviewed the footage and will not be filing charges on anyone involved.

The owner of the production company, Montgomery County Movies, said they will be working police moving forward.
