    NY - Brandon Woodard, 31, Manhattan, NYC, 10 Dec 2012

    L.A. man shot dead outside boarding school near Central Park
    NEW YORK (AP) — A man walking down a street outside a school near Central Park was shot in the back of the head on Monday and lay mortally wounded in a pool of blood as his killer escaped with a getaway driver, police said.

    The shooting occurred around 2 p.m. outside the Saint Thomas Choir School, a small boarding school for young boys on a fairly quiet street between busy avenues teeming with tourists and shoppers.

    The gunman, wearing a dark coat with a dark hood and khaki pants, came up behind 31-year-old Brandon Lincoln Woodard, of Los Angeles, and fired what appeared to be a silver semi-automatic pistol, striking him once.

    Saw this this morning. Interesting. Looks like LE has their hands full. I'm not too sure I'd be looking into the music industry. I'd concentrate on possible drug connection or mortgage or financial connection.

    Oh the tangled webs we weave.

    Oh, I so agree

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/p...KF6hA8IBWzcZKI

    Cops said Woodard was killed with a weapon that ballistics determined was also used in a 2009 shooting in which two men riddled a St. Albans, Queens, house with bullets. No one was hit.

    bbm, It appears there is a gun for hire.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    Woodard was carrying two mobile phones when he died, and a third was found in his luggage.

    These phone records should be interesting.

    More info in this article about the mom's business activities:

    “The number of people they burned, and people who lost their homes, is huge — their enemies list is huge,” Tonya Pinkins, a Tony Award-winning Broadway actress, told the Hollywood Web site showbiz411.com.

    Pinkins — a former actress on the TV soap “All My Children,’’ who is the ex-partner of McBeth-Reynolds’ current husband, Wellington, said “she would sell properties to Brandon and then he would default on them.’’
    Sounds like they had quite a scam going.

    DEAD END IN CITY RUBOUT: Cops question, release person of interest in brazen execution

    Woodard himself had three cell phones in his possession, one of which seems to have directed him by message right into the path of his assassin around 2 p.m. Monday.

    Then there’s the connection to a gruesome killing in Queens, an ambush in which three men who had been at a Brooklyn shindig thrown by a local party planner were sprayed by 63 bullets from an AK-47 as they sat in a car. A cell phone police tracked in the Woodard killing is registered to the party planner who hosted that event, a source said.
    Cops got the license plate number as the sedan went through the Midtown Tunnel shortly after Woodard’s murder.


    bbm, I wonder if the plates were switched?

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/12/12...on-police-say/



    Investigators were still trying to determine what Woodard -- who checked into his hotel on Sunday after flying in from California on a one-way ticket -- was doing in the city.

    bbm, is that normal? one way ticket to the place you visit?

    They tracked down the car in Queens with “Ring of Steel” technology, said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

    Kelly said cops used “mobile license-plate readers that move around throughout the city and what you can do is put in a plate number and scour an area, and that’s how it was found.”

    The paper, citing an unnamed source, reported that investigators are searching for a low-level criminal from Queens who is believed to have been behind the wheel of the getaway car.

    Police believe someone in the car pointed Woodard out to his murderer.
