29 year old freelance photographer, Chris Guerra died on Tuesday night after being run over by a vehicle after taking pictures of Justin Bieber's white $200,000 Ferrari in Los Angeles.
Chris had been tailing Justin's car when it was pulled over by California Highway Patrol officers. Justin wasn't behind the wheel when the car was pulled over by police but Chris thought he was and wanted to capture the moment.
He got out of his car to take pictures but was struck by a Toyota Highlander SUV as he was running back to his own vehicle after being told to return to his vehicle repeatedly by police. Chris was a freelance photographer who submitted pictures to AKI images/GSI Media for syndication.
Justin Bieber has called for new laws for paparazzi following the 'tragic' death of the photographer.
The 18-year-old released a statement on Wednesday: '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.'
Photographs taken from the scene show Guerra's hat and shoe lying in the road where he was hit. He was wearing the same baseball cap on one of the last time he was photographed last month in Aspen, Colorado.
The female driver of the car which struck the photographer is believed to have stopped other cars from hitting the man's body after she had called 911.
