Online Coney Date Turns Deadly

Making a date online turns for the worst when a popular car dealer in Coney Island Brooklyn meets up, instead, with armed men who lure him off the roof of a building and shooting him.

The New York Daily News reports:
Daniel Brandt, 24, who worked at an Infiniti auto dealership, thought he was going to meet the new girlfriend at the Sea Rise apartment complex there. Instead, he was confronted by two armed men around 1 a.m., police said.

"He had been in a conversation with a woman and he was going to meet her," a police source said. "He thought he was hooking up with the female."

The source said Brandt was lured up to the fourth floor of the tower, where the gunmen robbed him of his cash and other property then shot him once in the head.
