It’s that time of year when network TV shows are back in production. In one of the NBC series, “Law and Order: Organized Crime”, created by Dick Wolf, the series told about an early call when a shooting occurred during the filming of the series. Unfortunately, one crew member was killed, and in the following hours more details emerged about what happened in the early morning of July 19.

When the news about the shooting from Law and Order first appeared, we learned that an unknown person had repeatedly shot at an unidentified parking employee. The parking attendant was shot several times in the face and neck. They were later taken to the hospital, where they died from their injuries. NBC later confirmed that they were employees of the spin-off “Law and Order” starring Christopher Meloni, and not an outside employee.

A few hours later, new details became known. Now we know that 31-year-old Johnny Pizarro from Queens is a deceased member of an organized crime gang. Pizarro was in a car with an orange cone on the roof at the time. He was quickly taken to a hospital in Brooklyn, where he was pronounced dead around 6 a.m.

In addition, Deadline spoke with a member of the crew who was also working on the NBC series that day. This member of the film crew told the publication that he saw about 5:15 a.m. when the shooting occurred. This employee claims that they saw a man “with something under his shirt” running away from the area where Johnny Pizarro was.

The show was filmed that day in Brooklyn, but a law enforcement official also told the publication that they weren’t sure if it was an “established set” or not, or even close to filming. It is reported that this place is quite close to the Broadway Stages pavilions, and at that time “Law and Order: Organized Crime” may have been filmed inside.

Meanwhile, the office of New York Mayor Eric Adams also released a statement through a representative named Fabien Levy. (Although it’s worth noting that New York faced a lot of other problems yesterday, including a failure.) This office noted:

The safety of all New Yorkers is our top priority. Shooting is unacceptable, so we are working every day to remove illegal weapons from the streets of New York. The NYPD is actively investigating the fatal shooting of a member of the “Law and Order: Organized Crime” crew early this morning. We extend our deepest condolences to the victim’s family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time and will work hard to bring the suspect to justice and stop the wave of gun violence we are witnessing.

While “Law & Order: Organized Crime” was renewed for a 3rd season back in May, Christopher Meloni only recently confirmed that the show has moved on again on his Instagram page. So when the shooting happened, the show wasn’t in production for a very long time.

In addition, this news appeared against the background of talk about the possession and use of weapons in the United States in recent weeks. No one has been arrested yet, but the investigation is ongoing.
