TMZ reports the paparazzo, whose name wasn't released as of this post, was trying to snap photos of Bieber's Ferrari after it was stopped on Sepulveda Boulevard on L.A.'s Westside. Bieber wasn't in the car, the site says.

The photographer was following the Ferrari in another car and got out to try to shoot pictures of the traffic stop. California Highway Patrol officers told the man to step back.

Another vehicle, not involved in the traffic stop, then hit the photographer, killing him. L.A. police are investigating the collision.
