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."

Keep a watch on this story. There was a Criminal Minds story several years ago thar presented random shootings in NTC by guys in hoodies that were eventually tied to jihadis. If this happens again then there’s a real problem.
Come to New York they said. You’ll have fun there they said.
I’m thinking maybe some jihadist would just spray the street with gun fire. They always do things dramatic. One guy shot?
Bloomie is busy sending an undercover sting to AZ again to buy a handgun.
I was just thinking about that episode while I read the article.
Columbus Circle is a relatively safe place. But it might be frequented by drug sellers selling to white clients who don’t dare go into the ‘hood. I know that used to be common in Washington Square. So, it sounds more like a quarrel between drug gangs than anything else. Some gang trying to invade another gang’s sell spot.
Wheres Bloomie when you dont need him?.............................. Probably in his office cleaning HIS guns?
See if it happens a few more times. Creating fear and uncertainty by random violence is effective, Also, a single gunshot and a quick walkaway is less easily tracked than someone unloading a full mag from a Mac10. As for the Mafia, pro hitters like .22s not pistols that blow someone’s face away. If this was a drug or gang then NYPD will find how the out of town vic is connected to the business. If he’s totally random then it’s either a Son of Sam redux or the muzzies watch criminal minds reruns.
Time to ban hoodies.
There are so many surveillance cameras in Midtown, I expect they already have video and photos of the shooting, the shooter and the getaway car license plate and getaway car route.
Assassinations and gang hits are almost always done with a .22 LR. Us, the Russians, the Mossad, etc.
Agreed- Check his connections to the Kenyan, he’s either a member of Man’s Country, or knows where the poser’s birth records are.
If Obama had two sons, they’d look just like........... these guys.
Yes, Jamie Foxx has a solid alibi. The victim was NOT white.
Sounds like this guy got shot with something that starts with a .4
GASP! Wait a minute! The killer was a crimnminal. He was the only one with a gun. (I've heard something about that somewhere before.....)
Yes. If they bring a knife, we bring a gun. Thank you, Obama!
Not only guns but you can’t even carry a knife in NYC. I’m not kidding. Arrestable offense.
