The Asphalt Jungle

posted by on July 8 at 9:16 AM

Real pulp fiction in the New York Times:

A Brooklyn man was killed in a drawn-out gunfight with the police yesterday after squeezing a lifetime of mayhem into less than 20 minutes, carjacking and crashing two cars, firing at an apartment door and a carful of strangers, and then finally at officers who closed in after he squirmed out of a passengerís side window, the police said.

After the police shot him on a busy Crown Heights street, the man, Victor Gordon, 23, got up and resumed shooting before officers fired a final barrage. He was pronounced dead at Kings County Hospital, the police said, and as night fell, they counted at least 122 shell casings strewn along Park Place near Albany Avenue, where the shootout took place.

It does seem like a role for Richard Widmark.

I miss black and white films.

All I can see here is GTA. Clearly I need a film degree or something.

Now that's dedication.

If I were investigating the crime, first thing I'd do is issue an APB for women named Velma.
