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."

True - and also I’m with you on the .22 as the perfect assassination gun of choice. It’s quiet and effective. The Israeli Mossad uses it and also the .22 rifle in urban sniping. Bet that shooter used a 9mil Glock or similar.
His latest attack has been on firing range time for the cops ~ they obviously don't get enough of it and are incapable of properly operating the pitiful firearms they are issued.
He was wearing a hoodie. First of all, will black congressmen wear hoodies on the floor in a show of support? And two, did they guy have any Skittles?
Of greater importance, per chance was the victim gluttonously gulping a 32 oz. or larger sugary drink in violation of NYC prohibited substances laws? If so, the shooter could have been a rogue unhinged vigilante food policeman.
Is why I’m glad I live in Washington state. When I’m home I always carry my Beretta Tomcat in .32cal - loaded with Glaser Safeties and Hydra-Shocks. In Australia they’ve pretty much banned all firearms. If you just want to keep your lowly .22 rifle you have to fill out 20 pages of forms. But yet they still have gun deaths; and they try to compare it with US gun deaths. A country of 22 million vs a country of 320 million and they say there’s more gun deaths (per capita) in the US because of our liberal gun laws.
I live in ‘da hood and get to see more than my share of brutha-ly love. I would have to tell you that they prefer their “9’s”.
True, but a pro or a terrorist or even a madman would know about the cameras and account for them. Right now the NYPD has the vids and know if they’re valuable. If it ends with this vic then it’s a hit. Hopefully it ends here.
I recently upgraded from a .22lr semi to a Bersa Thunder 32. When I go out, I usually take along my new Bersa Thunder 9 UC Pro. Nice pistol! Have started to carry an extra 17 round mag too.
There are so many surveillance cameras in Midtown,

They are all preoccupied making sure you don’t drink a 20oz soft drink...
Priorities ya’ know....
I bet you saw that on TV.
I immediately thought of the movie “The Marathon Man.”
This is one of my favorite areas in NYC. Weird and sad.
Gang hits around Central Park West??? I don’t think so. I hope not!
Nope. Look at my homepage.
Also was this the area where the movie August Rush was filmed, or parts of it?
Yeah, that will do it a lot of the time.
Took 3 guys to write this story? I bet Edgar Sandoval was Barry Paddock's gang connection and Rocco Parascandola was his mob connection.
“Brandon Woodard, visiting from Los Angeles...” hmmm
“The victim, who has a young girl back home, his father said, has a criminal record, according to police sources. But his father said he was enrolled in law school and wanted to become a lawyer”. uh huh
I don’t think a jihadist is going after a black man....he wants the white guy on the floor. Much more dramatic and believable. I’m just sayin...
Just waiting to see follow-up news stories to see where it’s going.
