LA photographer killed while shooting Bieber's car

January 2, 2013

(AP) Police say a paparazzo was hit by a car and killed after taking photos of Justin Bieber's white Ferrari on a Los Angeles street.


Los Angeles police Officer James Stoughton says the photographer, who was not identified, died at a hospital shortly after the crash Tuesday evening. Stoughton says Bieber was not in the Ferrari at the time.


The sports car was parked on the side of Sepulveda Boulevard near Getty Center Drive after a traffic stop. The photographer was struck as he walked across the boulevard after taking pictures.


Stoughton says no charges are likely to be filed against the motorist who hit the man.


A call to a spokesperson for the singer was not immediately returned Tuesday night.
