‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Crew Killed on Set in New York

A man was fatally shot in an ambush on the set of “Law & Order: Organized Crime” while working parking enforcement for the show in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday.

Johnny Pizarro, 31, of Queens, was sitting in a car in the 200 block of North Henry Street in the Greenpoint neighborhood when a gunman attacked him around 5:15 AM.

The New York City Police Department said the suspect opened the car door and fired four times, striking Pizarro in the face and neck.

Pizarro was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at about 6 AM.

Pizarro was hired as an outside agent to clear parking spaces in order to make room for trucks.

The New York City Police Department described the suspect as a man with a thin build, about 5 feet and 4 inches tall, and last seen wearing a black hoodie and black pants.

The NYPD has made no arrests in the case as of Tuesday night.

“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. 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,” NBC and Universal Television said in a joint statement.
