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.
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.
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.
