Brandon Woodard 31,with his daughter, was a law student , coming to New York City on a one day trip.The cold-blooded Midtown murder of a Californian facing cocaine charges was possibly drug-related — and the murder weapon was used to shoot up a Queens home three years ago.
Detectives were questioning informants and criminals in Queens, where two men escaped in 2009 after pumping a dozen bullets into a Mangin Ave. home in St. Albans with the same gun.
“They never caught anyone involved with the shooting here,” said Yvette Brown, who lives at the home. “There are still bullet holes in the house.”
While the killer stalked Woodard from behind, it appeared the victim and gunman were strangers. The victim turned and caught a glimpse of the hitman on W. 58th St. — but didn’t react as if he recognized the man.
