Actors, Live Audience Scatter as Man Fires Gun at Cannes: VIDEO
Crowds at a live TV taping featuring actor Christopher Waltz scattered after a man fired a handgun, the Guardian reports:
"The bodyguards jumped over the barriers into the crowd and pulled him [the suspect] to the ground. The police arrived and told everyone to run because there was a grenade in his hand," one eyewitness told Reuters.
French authorities, who arrested the man at the scene, confirmed he was carrying a dummy grenade and a knife. A police source said: "It really appears to be a crazy guy."
Live footage showed actors and film crew scrambling from the seaside stage. The programme was taken off air temporarily, but continued minutes later after the programme's producer said: "The show must go on."
