The scramble to get pictures of anything or anyone related to Justin Bieber has taken a deadly turn.

Police in Los Angeles say a paparazzo was hit by a car and killed after taking photos of Bieber's white Ferrari. It happened on a Los Angeles street - and police say the photographer died at a hospital after being struck by a car. Bieber's sports car was parked on the street after a traffic stop - but Bieber wasn't in the car.

The photographer got the shots - but paid with his life, being hit by a car as he crossed Sepulveda Boulevard after snapping the images.

Police say no charges are likely to be filed against the motorist who hit the photographer.
