(Newser) – You had to see this one coming: Law & Order: LA is filming a "ripped from the headlines" episode that echoes the Gabrielle Giffords shooting. Filming started yesterday on an episode involving a female state senator who is gunned down in public, Entertainment Weekly reports. A rep for the show helpfully clarified that the Law & Order is a work of fiction. No official word on when NBC will air the show, though one Arizona Republic writer was told it would be the season finale.
