Three Men In BMW ‘Executed’ In Broad Daylight Outside Columbia University
World

A drug deal turned deadly in Manhattan’s Morningside Heights neighborhood, where police found three men dead. The men were found inside a parked BMW near Columbia University. Students and residents in the area should bear caution. 

The men were discovered around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday evening on the outskirts of Columbia’s campus. The men, who were all in their 20s, were found inside of a dark grey 2009 750 Li BMW.

Each of the men appeared to have been shot in the head, although there were no bullet holes in the car.

According to DNAInfo, the $88,000 car was parked near the intersection of W. 122nd Street and Claremont Avenue, between the Union Theological Seminary and Riverside Church.

Police revealed that two men were found in the front and one man was found in the backseat. Sources believe that the shooter was sitting behind the men before pulling the trigger. The front seat victims were shot in the base of the skull, while the backseat victim was shot in his left temple.

Officers believe that the car had only been parked for an hour at most before it was discovered.

This was a classic triple assassination. The shooter had to be a cool customer to kill three men so close to him. He was quick and deadly.

No 911 calls were made and no students complained about gunfire noise. “Shooting three people in a car is extremely loud and the shooter may have used a silencer,” said a police source. “And [the shooter] may have plugged his ears.”

Hours later, “blood was still dripping” from the “very bloody scene” outside of Columbia’s Knox Hall. ”Both men in the front seat were wearing white T-shirts, both drenched in blood,” said a police spokesman.

Police have not yet released the name of the three victims, but have barricaded the area.

According to thNew York Daily Newsthe driver was Hispanic and the man in the passenger seat was black. They have not yet released the ethnicity of the man in the back seat.

The police were notified at 6:30 p.m. by a man walking by the car.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said that authorities will go through surveillance video.
