Actor EthanHawke 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."
