Just before the accident, the 28-year-old shared a photo of the “faulty props” to his Instagram story:


The band’s management released a statement saying the gun had been loaded with blanks and not actual ammunition:

“Johann was tragically fatally injured when a prop gun was discharged as part of filming a scene in Bliss n Eso’s video clip. The gun was loaded with blanks, not live ammunition.”

Detective Tom Armitt told Seven News that an investigation is underway:

“During the filming [of the music video], several firearms were used … I can’t tell you whether they are live or real firearms … I can’t tell you the type of ammunition that were being used. That will be subject of the investigation.”

Meanwhile, the rap group released a statement expressing their condolences:

“The three of us are extremely upset and shaken up by this. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victim’s family and friends as well as the cast and crew who were involved in the clip today.”

We’re sure everyone involved is still reeling from the loss — especially Johann’s six-year-old daughter, Kyarna, and his girlfriend, Kati Garnett.
