The victim of the NYC execution was a Virginia man who was visiting his cousin: police officers

A man executed in broad daylight on the Upper West Side over the weekend was a Virginia resident who was in town visiting his cousin, police officers said Monday.

Victim Ronald Thomas, 27, was in a white Mercedes Benz GLA 250 arguing with a woman just before a gunman rolled into another vehicle around 12:15 p.m. Sunday and fatally shot him in the head, police officers said.

The shooting happened near the Frederick Douglass Houses at West 102 Street on Amsterdam Avenue — about a block from the NYPD’s 24 Precinct Police Station.

The motive for the killing was not clear, but the victim appeared to have been targeted, a police source said.

“They all knew each other,” a police source said.

Crime scene photos show the victim seated in his SUV, a sheet draped over his body, and a distraught woman nearby.

The violence came amid the NYPD’s announcement that it would begin putting more officers on duty at night to curb shootings ahead of the summer months.
