The Georgia man who was shot and killed in Queens by a suspect dressed in Hasidic-style clothes had recently been incarcerated on drug charges and had $10,000 in cash in his pocket at the time of his murder, law enforcement sources told The Post Friday.
Jermaine Dixon, 46, was entering his car on South Conduit Avenue near 132nd Street in South Ozone Park at about 8 a.m. Monday when the suspect, dressed in the apparent religious garb, ran up to him and fatally shot him at point-blank range, according to video, police and sources.
Dixon had the wad of cash in his pocket and the suspect tried to take it but ran off before he could, law enforcement sources said Friday. A second person had also been keeping watch and the pair waited several hours for Dixon to walk up to his car, the sources added.
It was not immediately clear what was behind the shooting and police said no arrests had been made. Cops were investigating whether the suspect was impersonating an Hasidic man.
When reached by phone, Dixon's sister Nadia Powell said the family didn't want to comment. "I'm not going to lie to you, this is a rough time for us. Give us some time," Powell said.
