A man has died in a CBD hotel after being shot in the chest during filming.
Police were called to the Brooklyn Standard in Eagle Lane, where it’s understood a music video was being shot, at 2pm on Monday following reports of a “workplace incident”.
Paramedics treated the man in his 20s for a wound to the chest before he was declared dead.

Some media outlets have reported the shooting took place on the Pacific Rim: Uprising movie set, which stars John Boyega and Scott Eastwood.It is believed the incident may have related to a hip hop music video being filmed in the area.
Filming for the Hollywood blockbuster has taken place in the area, with the nearby Eagle Street precinct closed down, over the past two weekends.
But producers have denied any filming of the movie on Monday. Police are scheduled to hold a press conference on Monday afternoon.
