Shocking death during filming: a member of a cult series murdered on the set

A few months after the tragedy that struck the shooting of the film Rust who saw Alec Baldwin accidentally kill the director of photography with a weapon supposed to be loaded with blanks, it’s the turn of the series New York, organized crime (Law & Order: Organized Crime in VO), the spin-off of New York, special unit worn by Chris Meloni (Elliot Stabler) and broadcast on the 13th Street channel in France, to be affected by a tragedy.

A member of Law & Order: Organized Crime murdered

It was the New York Times that revealed the sad information, Johnny Pizarro – a member of the technical team, was murdered on Tuesday July 19, 2022 while working on the series. Aged 31, his main tasks were to reserve places in order to allow the shooting of scenes in the streets (to prevent cars or passers-by from being in the field), but also to watch over the equipment used.

According to the first details, Johnny Pizarro was found in his car in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn around 5 a.m., the victim of numerous shots in the head and neck. For the time being, no arrests have yet been made and it is therefore not certain that this death is linked to the filming of New York, organized crime.

Despite everything, NBC and Universal Television – which produce the series, wanted to share their emotion through a press release. “We are terribly saddened and shocked to learn that one of our team members was the victim of a crime very early in the morning and died as a result.they wrote. We are working with local law enforcement as they continue the investigation. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones and we ask that you respect their privacy during this time..”
