It took one bullet in the back of the head to kill a 31-year-old man visiting Manhattan on Monday, in a shocking, broad-daylight attack near Columbus Circle and Carnegie Hall, a police source said Monday.
The suspect, described as wearing a brown hoodie, a dark coat and khaki pants, fled the scene in a grey vehicle, cops said.
"He was bleeding bad, Kolo said. Blood was gushing out of his eyeball, his nose, mouth, everywhere. He was talking a little. Or trying to. He was alive for good two minutes."
"You could not even see anything on one side of his face. It was gone, he continued. Half of his face was gone. Poor bastard. I didnt even see a shooter. I hope they catch him."

NY needs gun control laws!
They don’t give any details on the victim, but this was clearly a hit.
Something similar happened in the Diamond District not too long ago.
NYC is still the safest big city in the United States. Just saying.
The victim, a 31-year-old black male, was approached from behind by his killer and shot once in the back of the head,
The suspect, described as a black male wearing a dark coat, dark hood and khaki pants, hopped into the passenger side of a light-colored Lincoln MKZ sedan
Sounds like a pro hit. One of Obama’s racialist mixer-uppers off the leash?
Obama voter kills fellow Obama voter.
There’s the New York I remember. It would be good to have a mayor and police chief dealing with reality, and not spending as much time worrying about being commissars of political correctness.
Not that farfetched..... jmo
Drug gangs, I bet. I read about it in the NY Post, and they described both the shooter and the victim as black. And the car certainly sounds like a drug car.
They had a similar incident a few months ago in Harlem. A man just walked up to another man sitting in a car, shot him in the head, and strolled away to a waiting car. I’m not sure they caught the killer, but the victim was known to have been a biggie in the drug world, and the cops thought there was a turf war going on.
Does Jamie Foxx have an alibi??
Well why doesn’t NYC just outlaw drugs? It worked so well for handguns, didn’t it? Where’s Bloomie when you don’t need him?
