A gunman reportedly disguised as a Hasidic Jew – and hiding behind the raised hood of his vehicle – ambushed a man with a point-blank bullet to the head as the victim was getting into his car in Queens, police said.
Jermaine Dixon, 47, was found dead around 8am on South Conduit Avenue in South Ozone Park, police said.
Video footage showed a man in what appears to be the traditional rekel – a long, black coat – and a wide brim black hat worn by Hasidic Jews lurking in front of his white Nissan sedan, according the New York Post.

The shooter had his trunk, hood and car door open before hunching under the hood as Dixon approached his own car, according the video.
Once Dixon turned his back on the man to open the door of his car, the unidentified killer ran across the street and shot Dixon in the back of the head, the video showed.
Dixon’s body was slumped in the front seat as the man ran back to his car, slammed the hood down and drove away from the scene.
