LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena got a front row seat to Los Angeles gang violence.

The actors, who were on riding along with police on patrol in South Los Angeles, were on the scene of a gang shooting late Wednesday. The actors are researching police work for their roles in the upcoming movie “End of Watch.”

Sgt. Angela McGee says a gang member shot a rival, who is hospitalized with a grazing bullet wounds above his lip and on an arm. Two suspects walked away and there are no arrests.

McGee says the actors were on patrol with 77th Street Station officers. KTTV Fox 11 video shows the actors talking while officers investigate nearby.

“End of Watch” is a drama that focuses on the partnership of two police officers.
