The neighborhood where "Fast & Furious" star Walker died in the one-car crash is known to attract street racers, according to law enforcement officials. Walker and his friend and fellow fast-car enthusiast Roger Rodas died Saturday when the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT they were traveling in smashed into a light pole and tree. The two had taken what was expected to be a brief drive away from a charity fundraiser at Rodas' custom car shop in the Southern California community of Valencia, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of Los Angeles.

(AP) - Production on "Fast & Furious 7" is on hold following the death of star Paul Walker.

Shooting on the film had been scheduled to resume this week in Atlanta but was canceled Monday and Tuesday.

A spokesman for Universal Pictures declined to say when shooting will resume.

Production on the latest installment of the franchise began in September.

While a large portion of the film has been shot, the movie is incomplete. It's scheduled for release in July, a date that could be difficult to meet with any lengthy delay.

The 40-year-old Walker died Saturday in a crash north of Los Angeles that also killed his friend Roger Rodas, who was driving.
