    NEW YORK (AP) — A gunman used homophobic slurs before firing a fatal shot point-blank into a man's face on a Manhattan street alive with a weekend midnight crowd, a killing New York's police commissioner called an "anti-gay" hate crime.

    Before opening fire early Saturday, the gunman confronted the victim and his companion in Greenwich Village and asked if they "want to die here," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

    The shooting follows a series of recent bias attacks on gay men in New York, but this was the first deadly one............

    Police said the gunman, identified later as 33-year-old Elliot Morales, told both the bartender and the manager, "if you do call the police, I'll shoot you" and opened his sweatshirt to reveal a shoulder holster with a revolver and made anti-gay remarks, Kelly said.

    Morales has a previous arrest for attempted murder in 1998, police said. Details of that arrest weren't immediately clear.

    This is just beyond incomprehensible to me. I mean, I get that you might hate gays... but enough to look them in the eye pull the trigger, become a murderer and throw your own life away?

    if you're an ex-con robber using a false ID are you really in a position to criticize anyone because of who they love?
