NY police: LA man’s killer silent, cool, precise

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say the shooter of a Los Angeles man in broad daylight on a New York City street was so cool and precise he left no doubt he’s killed before, possibly as a professional hit man.

Officials say a security video that hasn’t been made public shows the gunman walking up behind Brandon Lincoln Woodard on Monday and pressing the barrel of a pistol to the back of his head without saying a word. The gunman later slips into a getaway car as the driver pulls off.

The car was found unoccupied and parked Wednesday in Queens.

Police say they’ve interviewed a woman who spent time with Woodard the evening before he was shot a block from Central Park.

No motive or suspect has been identified in the killing.
