'Law & Order' film crew member shot dead at filming location

According to police, Johnny Pizarro was found on a residential street in Brooklyn suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the head and neck.

A New York man working at a filming location for the TV series ``Law & Order: Organized Crime'' was shot and killed early Tuesday (19 JULY 2022) before filming was scheduled to start for the day.

According to police, Johnny Pizarro was found at about 5:15 a.m. on a residential street in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the head and neck.

The 31-year-old Queens resident was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police were investigating and hadn't released information on suspects or a motive.

News photos from the scene showed police tape blocking off a street where traffic cones stood in spots where cars normally would be parked. No filming was going on at the time of the shooting, according to an NBC spokesperson.

The network confirmed that Pizarro was a crew member for the series, a spinoff of the long-running ``Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.'' It is in production for its third season and scheduled to air this fall.

"We were terribly saddened and shocked to hear that one of our crew members was the victim of a crime early this morning and has died as a result,'' NBC and Universal Television said in a statement.

"We are working with local law enforcement as they continue to investigate. Our hearts go out to his family and friends and we ask that you respect their privacy during this time.''
