The name of the photographer killed while attempting to take snaps of Justin Bieber's Ferrari on a busy Los Angeles road has been released by police officials.

Christopher James Guerra, 29, was fatally struck by an Suv on Tuesday (01Jan13), according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office, as he was returning to his vehicle.

Bieber, who has called the death a "tragic accident" was not in the Ferrari. It was being driven by the pop star's friend.

Law enforcement sources claim it is unlikely charges will be filed against the driver of the Suv.
