Lt Gregory Solowsky, of the Lauderhill Police Department, said Wallock’s shooting was not a random act of violence.
‘You can say he was executed,’ he added, speaking to the Sun-Sentinel.

The gangland type execution took place in the parking lot of the Lobster and Seafood Warehouse in Lauderhill at 5.30 pm Tuesday. Wallock was with girlfriend at the time and witnessed his assassination but escaped unharmed.
The CCTV video released by the police on Thursday shows the victim and his girlfriend emerging from the seafood market, holding a plastic shopping bag, heading towards their parked Volkswagen Jetta sedan.

When he spots Wallock and his girlfriend standing next to their car, the man in the red shirt sprints toward the couple from behind, pulls out a gun and starts firing.

According to police, the gunman fired at least 25 rounds at Wallock at a point-blank range, 13 of which hit the target.
In the video, Wallock crumples to the ground under the barrage of bullets, but the perpetrator continues pumping rounds into his body.
Meanwhile, the victim’s panic-stricken girlfriend flees in terror. As the woman runs away, the killer turn the gun in her direction and squeezes several rounds, but misses.

At one point, the woman trips over a concrete parking barrier and falls, which police said might have saved her life.
Wallocks’ girlfriend later returned to the parking lot, but by that time her boyfriend was beyond help.
Investigators believe the unidentified shooter was brought to the parking lot by another person driving a 2010 blue Nissan Altima with Florida plates EZXF13, which he then used as a getaway car after carrying out the killing.

The gunman continued firing at the fleeing woman, but missed. WSVN reported that Gary Wallock was a Jamaican national who had been in the US only a short period of time. He is survived by a young daughter.
Police are still trying to pin down a motive behind what Lt Solowsky described to CBS Miami as a ‘cold, calculated homicide.’

It appears that Wallock’s girlfriend was not injured. She is out of the area and is being protected by police, while Wallock died on the scene. Originally from Jamaica, Wallock and had not been in the United States very long. He leaves behind his parents and a young daughter.
Devastated by his son’s death, the victim’s father, Donald, can’t figure out who would target his son. “That must be some grief that he’s been carrying way back there for somebody to do something like that,” Donald said.
Police believe an accomplice drove the getaway car, a 2010 blue Nissan Ultima, with the Florida plate EZXF13.
Anyone with information about the deadly shooting, the location of the getaway car or its occupants are being asked to call Detective Chad Williams at 954-717-4615 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
