The Rookie, which is currently filming its third season, stars Nathan Fillion as John Nolan. The series follows Nolan as the LAPD's oldest rookie officer and is based on the real-life story of LAPD Officer William Norcross, who joined the force in his 40s.

The shooting happened as the production team was in the midst of moving filming locations, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show will resume production as scheduled at a different location later Thursday night, Deadline reported.
