The NYPD released grisly surveillance video on Thursday that shows a suspect pretending to work on his car on a Queens street before ambushing a man and killing him with multiple shots to the head. 

The victim, 46-year-old Jermaine Dixon, walked across the street on Monday morning and opened the driver's side door of an SUV when the suspect started running toward him. 

Seconds later, the gunman fired multiple shots at Dixon from close range. Dixon was pronounced deceased at the scene.
