    Australia - Ho Ledinh, 65, shot to death, Bankstown, NSW, 23 Jan 2018

    http://www.news.com.au/national/nsw-...0fc511915dbd0e

    THE man shot dead at point-blank range in a Sydney cafe while sipping coffee has been identified as a local criminal lawyer. The man, aged in his 60s, was sitting at a table when at Happy Cup Cafe in Bankstown when a gunman pulled out a handgun and shot him execution-style this afternoon.
    Acting Superintendent Brad Thorne said the gunman had not been identified but the shooting was believed to be a “targeted” attack.

    NSW Police probe Bankstown shooting death of prominent lawyer Ho Le Dinh
    ABC News
    BY NADIA DALY AND RILEY STUART
    UPDATED ABOUT AN HOUR AGO [as at 08:12 AEDT 23 January 2018]

    ‘Friends of prominent Vietnamese lawyer Ho Le Dinh are struggling to make sense of the family man's brazen daylight shooting murder on a busy Sydney street yesterday.

    Key points:

    • Police said Ho Le Dinh was shot several times in Bankstown
    • The father-of-three's death has shocked Sydney's Vietnamese community
    • He was aged in his 60s and was a well-known criminal lawyer

    Mr Ho, aged in his 60s, died on the side of a Bankstown road after being shot several times just before 4:00pm in what New South Wales Police described as a "targeted attack".

    Police are still searching for the gunman behind the shooting, with witnesses saying the attacker fled on foot.’

    'A targeted attack'

    The ABC understands Mr Ho was a well-known criminal lawyer, and lived in Randwick.

    Police said they believed a handgun was used in the attack.

    "We do believe that it is a targeted attack — that's how it appears at this stage," Acting Commander Brad Thorne said.

    ‘The street is a major artery in the western-Sydney centre of Bankstown, and was closed to the public after the attack.’

    Prayers for Mr Ho's family.

    I am guessing he maybe recently dealt with a case which involved a 5T gang member. They are still quite active in Sydney and the modus operandi is what they would normally do.

    For murderer, read ‘enforcer’ or ‘hitman’. If it benefits someone and/or their enterprise, his name will be whispered in the right ears. Whether he’ll be arrested or has fled OS, to a country that doesn’t have a criminal extradition treaty with Australia, is another matter.

    It’s understood Mr Ledinh’s young wife and their three children left yesterday morning for Vietnam, JUST HOURS BEFORE THE KILLING. A friend told media the couple met at the same cafe he was killed in, which he is believed to part own.

    It was a hot day yesterday and others in the vid are in shorts, thongs & t-shirts. The coat was truly out of place.

    (In Aust we’ve always called flip flops thongs)

    The long coat could have hidden a sawn-off rifle.

    That answers why there was no blood up in the wall.
    Why the pelvic region?

    Was it for a slower painful death, revenge for adultery/affair or a larger target region.
