'Justified' Revival Series Halts Filming After a Shooting Occurs Near Set: Report

The shooting incident occurred in Chicago on Wednesday but filming on Justified: City Primeval is reportedly scheduled to resume on Monday

The set of FX's upcoming Justified revival, starring Timothy Olyphant, was reportedly impacted by a shooting incident.

On Wednesday, Variety reported that production on the Chicago set of Justified: City Primeval was halted after two cars broke through barricades blocking off the filming area. The people within the vehicles were in the midst of a rolling gun fight.

No cast or crew members were said to be injured in the incident, which occurred near Douglass Park. Filming is reportedly scheduled to resume on Monday.

PEOPLE has reached out to FX and the Chicago Police Department for comment.

Justified is a six-season long western crime drama that aired on FX from 2010 to 2015. In January, the network announced its plans to revive the popular show as a limited, sequel series with Olyphant reprising his former role as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens.

Production on Justified: City Primeval began in May. Aunjanue Ellis, Boyd Holbrook, Adelaide Clemens, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Marin Ireland, Norbert Leo Butz, Victor Williams and Vivian Olyphant also star in the series.
