A crew member on the TV series Law & Order: Organized Crime has been shot dead at a filming location for the show in New York.

Johnny Pizarro was found at about 5.15am local time on Tuesday on a residential street in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn before a day of filming was scheduled to begin.

He was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the head and neck, according to police.

The 31-year-old, from Queens, New York, was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police were investigating and had not released information on suspects or a motive.

No filming was going on at the time of the shooting, according to an NBC spokesperson.

The network confirmed that Mr Pizarro was a crew member for the series, a spin-off of the long-running Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

It is in production for its third season and scheduled to air this autumn.

“We were terribly saddened and shocked to hear that one of our crew members was the victim of a crime early this morning and has died as a result,” NBC and Universal Television said in a statement.
