Justin Bieber Photog

Followed the Singer All Day

EXCLUSIVE

TMZ has learned the identity of the photog who was killed while shooting Justin Bieber's car -- he's freelance paparazzo Chris Guerra.

Sources tell us -- Guerra, who was in his late 20s -- was following Bieber all day Tuesday.  Guerra called someone connected with a paparazzi agency at around 5:30 PM to say he was waiting for Justin, who had pulled into the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills a short time earlier.  Guerra abruptly said the Ferrari was pulling out of the hotel and he had to leave.

Guerra apparently assumed Justin was in the car.  As we first reported ... he was not.

Guerra had been working in a Las Vegas casino for several years, when he moved out to L.A. in March to become a photog.

In recent months, he worked the Bieber detail exclusively.

Guerra was not married and had no kids.

So sad, may his soul rest in peace. Totally not worth his life. Condolences to his family and loved ones. Hope someone learns a lesson out of this. The only good thing that can come out of this situation.

This happens when the silly courts drop charges against Paul Raef, the aggressive pap who was dangerously speeding and stalking Justin!

Paps chase Princess Di; SHE DIES! Paps chase Justin; PAP DIES! Obviously someone in Heaven looks after him!

..BREAKING NEWS ... police reveal name of driver who run over and killed PAPARAZZI who chased Justin's car = CHUCK NORRIS .................LOL

Tonight we can all sleep peacefully cuz not only there's "One Less Lonely Girl" but also there's "One Less Pap Chasing Justin" !!! ...........LOL

How sad = the Pap died but HEY his photo survived = Hurray !!!

Did anyone snap the Pap getting splattered? Now that's a picture I'd pay to see!

Seriously, its so cruel to say the PAPARAZZI finally got what they deserve! but the above report shows he was ALWAYS chasing, stalking & harrassing, he rob all his privacy, make his life bitter, and drive him into real danger when he lost his temper! and the hypocrite calls that a good photo!

Basically Paparazzi are now totally REDUNDANT cuz both Alfredo and Justin takes his own photo and posts himself on Instagram, facebook and links on Twitter!

Finally, i sure hope Justin does NOT feel guilty over PAPARAZZI death! Please don't give up now - you're the one telling the world to NEVERSAYNEVER!

Yall are some insensitive POS's. A man died. He was someones son, brother or nephew. He wasnt doing anything illegal, he wasnt hurting any body. He was out trying to earn a living, unlike you @-holes, who love to leave insensitive anonymous comments from your moms computer.

What a barren, horrid, do nothing life this guy had. Follow some rich kid around until you walk out into the middle of the street and get run over.

I am sorry for his family. But income/making a living requires these guys to take ridiculous risks as gossip sells. Not their faults, its ours because we eat this **** up!

Have we become that desensitized? A man is dead. Regardless how, he was still a human being, someone's son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew. My gosh! Rest in peace brother.
