A Philadelphia teenager has been fatally shot just around the corner from where a mob movie titled "Dead Man Down" is filming.

Authorities on Tuesday identified the victim of the Monday afternoon shooting in the city's Frankford neighborhood as 18-year-old Robert Sneed.

Sneed was shot in the back and side. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Police say a witness spotted the shooter run into a nearby home. Authorities say three people were taken into custody and a gun was recovered. No charges have been filed.

"Dead Man Down," a mob movie starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace (rah-PACE'), was scheduled to film nearby starting Tuesday. It has already filmed scenes elsewhere in the city.
