NYPD releases security photo in shooting of LA man
NEW YORK (AP) – A security camera photo shows a man pulling a weapon from his pocket moments before police say he shot a Los Angeles man in midtown Manhattan.
The NYPD released the photo Tuesday amid a manhunt for the unidentified suspect in the execution-style slaying.
The photo shows the gunman walking up behind Brandon Lincoln Woodard on Monday before shooting him in the head. The shooter then slipped into a waiting Lincoln sedan and fled.
The killing occurred on West 58th Street near the Time Warner Center.
Police said the 31-year-old Woodward had prior arrests in Los Angeles but had no other details about his background.
His family said he graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2003 and had attended Whittier Law School in California.
