Yet another tragedy happened on the set of a movie as a crew member on the hit US TV crime drama Law & Order was gunned down on the show’s New York set in a shooting that could well have been scripted.

According to the New York Post, Johnny Pizarro, a 31-year-old married father of three, had just begun his shift on the set of Law & Order: Organized Crime on Tuesday, local time. Around 5.15 a.m., he was sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle that was saving a parking space in the Brooklyn suburb of Greenpoint when another man suddenly opened the driver’s door and shot him, according to officials and friends.
