Police have confirmed that Johnny Pizarro, a 31-year-old crew member, was shot and killed in his car while saving parking spaces for filming on Tuesday. The set was closed for the day so police could investigate, but investigators have no suspects or motive for the murder at this time.

Christopher Meloni, 61, plays Detective Elliot Stabler in the franchise’s spin-off.

In a statement to NBC Universal, the company said: “We were terribly saddened and shocked to learn that one of our team members was the victim of a crime early this morning and died as a result. We are working with local law enforcement while they continue their investigation. Our hearts go out to his family and friends, and we ask that you respect their privacy during this time.”
