This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
But could someone from the Biebs' camp actually have driven the car that struck him?
As we previously reported, Chris was following the Biebs' Ferrari when it was pulled over by the CHP. The paparazzo immediately began snapping photos but was told to leave by the police.
While crossing the busy freeway on foot, the paparazzo was killed when he was struck by a black SUV, either a Range Rover or a Hummer, then run over by another car.
Now Chris' mother - who is already suing the Highway Patrol - believes the first vehicle to hit her son may have belonged to Justin's entourage!
The mother is now demanding that police let her watch the surveillance camera footage of the incident to prove it one way or another, but police won't release evidence in an ongoing investigation.
We hope whoever hit the poor guy and drove off is brought to justice, no matter who it was. But we're not sure showing that footage to a grieving mom would be the best thing for anyone.
