The set of “Law & Order” turned deadly.
While the crew was clearing the streets for a shoot, shots rang out.
Exactly why this happened, authorities are still investigating, but a crew member was killed in the exchange.
Crew member Johnny Pizarro was tasked with clearing the street by holding parking spaces for the shoot.
He was sitting in the driver’s seat of a car when someone threw open the door and opened fire on him.
He was hit in the neck and head.
Pizarro, who was only 31 years old, was transferred to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
One of his colleagues stated, “It was crazy.
“I didn’t hear an argument or nothing. It was quiet, early morning.
“It was just a pop, and the [gunman] ran up towards Nassau [Avenue].
“I only heard one bang, but I don’t know how many shots.
“I don’t even know who would do this or why.’’
This particular neighborhood in Brooklyn is a popular area for the TV show due to its location near the studio.
Residents are not exactly happy about it, but they seem to tolerate it, although there are some local protests over the parking situation.
If that was the reason behind this shooting, as stated above, is not known yet.
