Chilling new details have emerged about the execution-style killing of a recently released convicted murderer in Queens, including that in the weeks leading up to his slaying he would look over his shoulder whenever he ventured outside the hotel where was staying.
Jermaine Dixon, 46, was fatally shot in the back of the head by a suspected hitman disguised as a Hasidic Jew early Monday morning in Queens.
Shocking surveillance footage captured the moment Dixon was ambushed as he climbed into his car, parked just 500 feet from the Comfort Inn that he called 'home.'
The cold-blooded execution took place in broad daylight, less than a year after Dixon, a former gang member, was released from prison after serving 19 years for a murder conviction.
Law enforcement sources told NBC New York they are looking into the possibility that the unidentified gunman targeted Dixon because he believed the ex-convict was cooperating with the government as an informant against his co-defendants.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Once Dixon turned his back on the man to open the door of his car, the hitman ran across the street and shot the former 'Patio Crew' gang member in the back of the head, the video showed.
