PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say a man killed after gunfire rang out during the filming of an amateur rap video in Philadelphia wasn’t shot as was originally thought but died from being struck by a car.

Police say the man tripped and fell and then was accidentally run over by a car as a crowd of more than 100 people panicked and tried to flee the scene Thursday night.

Homicide Capt. James Clark says officers first thought the man had been shot in the head but no gunshot wounds were found during an autopsy.

After the shots rang out, police took into custody three men who had guns. Those men may face charges.

Police say the driver of the car cooperated with authorities and is unlikely to be charged.
