A CREW member for the hit TV series Law & Order is dead after being gunned down while on the set.
The 31-year-old parking enforcement worker was fatally shot while on the set of Law & Order: Organized Crime in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, at around 5.15am on Tuesday, police sources told the New York Post.
The employee was seated inside a car when an unidentified man approached the car, yanked open the door, and fired several rounds, striking the worker in the face and neck.
A notice posted on the block by the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment indicated that filming for an episode of the show's third-season episode was set to begin at 6am.
The suspect is described as having a medium complexion and was last seen wearing a black hoodie and black pants, cops said.
Another crew member told the outlet how he heard a "pop" and a person running away during the unprovoked attack.

“I don’t even know who would do this or why. I didn’t hear an argument or nothing. It was quiet," the worker said.
"Early morning. It was just a pop, and the dude ran up towards Nassau [Avenue]. I only heard one bang, but I don’t know how many shots.”
The crew member said he and the victim are part of a team that holds parking for cast members of the show.
“The trucks come, we park in our trucks, and we wait for the stars to come out,” he told the Post.

“The trucks have equipment for the TV shows and movie scenes. We’ve been doing this for five or six years.
"We put up the flyers, cones and park the trucks. We come 24 hours in advance to start clearing out the parking."
The co-worker said he knew the victim for seven years and described him as “like a brother to me.”
“He was a great guy. Always laughing or making somebody laugh, you know? It was crazy,” he told the Post.
The victim had a wife and three children, his co-worker revealed.
