The Pitch Perfect star recently shared that he and wife Chloe Bridges witnessed someone being killed near their Hollywood Hills mansion. Speaking onstage June 7 at a live taping of the This Is Important podcast with his Workaholics co-creators, DeVine recalled seeing people driving to what appeared to be a gathering at a neighbor's house.
"I see these dudes and it's like fun to sit and watch, and me and my wife, we're sitting up on our balcony, and we're like, 'Oh, this looks crazy,'" he said, as seen in a New York Post video. "And this is where it gets sad: Someone was murdered there!"
His comments prompted shock from his Workaholics co-creators and podcast co-hosts, including Blake Anderson, who asked the Bumper in Berlin actor to repeat himself.
DeVine said, once more, "Someone was murdered there!"
Following his declaration, a dramatic sound effect played, drawing cheers from the crowd.
"Dude, I called that s--t," he continued. "I called that s--t. I was like, 'This is dastardly stuff happening right here,' and then sure enough, someone was gunned down. That happens. Someone be dying."
DeVine's ominous story came just hours after multiple local Los Angeles TV outlets stated that the Los Angeles Police Department are investigating the fatal June 7 shooting of a man outside a home located in the actor's neighborhood.
CBS Los Angeles quoted investigators as saying that a party took place at the house the night of the killing and that the victim had gotten into an argument with a person outside and was then shot several times. Police told the outlet that they believe the assailant fled the scene in a waiting vehicle and that there may be more than one suspect in the case.
An LAPD spokesperson identified the victim as Emil Lahaziel, 39, to KTLA, noting that he was pronounced dead at the scene,
