Paparazzo Killed While Following Justin Bieber

How much are Justin Bieber photos worth?

For one member of the paparazzi, the answer is tragic: his life.

Sources confirm to TMZ that a celebrity gossip photographer was trailing Bieber's Ferrari last night when it was pulled over for a routine traffic stop.

Upon being told by an officer to move back because his shooting pictures of the car was creating an unsafe situation, this cameraman was hit by an oncoming vehicle and killed.

The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the incident, but authorities say neither drugs nor alcohol played a role for anyone involved.

Moreover, it has now been determined that Bieber was not even in his car at time of the tragedy.

This is by far the most disturbing, but it is not the first incident involving Justin and the paparazzi on the road.

In July, Bieber was cited for excessive speeding as he tried to elude a photographer on his tail; and in May, the artist was accused of battery by a "journalist" who was allegedly blocking his car and claimed Bieber shoved him when he refused to move.

Says Bieber in a statement:

"While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim.

"Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves."
