Imam and associate gunned outside NYC mosque

Clearly this was not a random act of violence. Someone clearly wanted these two dead.

From AP:
The leader of a New York City mosque and an associate were fatally shot in a brazen daylight attack as they left afternoon prayers Saturday.

The police said 55-year-old Imam Maulama Akonjee and his 64-year-old associate, Tharam Uddin, were each shot in the back of the head as they left the Al-Furqan Jame Masjid mosque in the Ozone Park section of Queens shortly before 2 p.m.

Both men were pronounced dead later Saturday, an administrator at Jamaica Hospital said.

No one is in custody.
Wow. No one is in custody. Just like most Chicago murders.

The NY Daily News reports that a 35 year old suspect is in custody and that there had been an ongoing feud between the Muslim and Hispanic communities in the neighborhood.
