NEW YORK (AP) – A man fatally shot in the back of the head while walking outside a school near Central Park was from Los Angeles.

New York City police have identified him as 31-year-old Brandon Lincoln Woodard.

Authorities say he was walking between Manhattan avenues teeming with tourists and shoppers Monday afternoon when the gunman went up behind him and fired what appeared to be a silver semi-automatic pistol, striking him once. The victim collapsed in a pool of blood.

Police say the gunman jumped into a waiting car with a getaway driver and fled.

The shooting occurred outside the Saint Thomas Choir School, a small boarding school for young boys on a fairly quiet street between Broadway and Seventh Avenue.
