Footage showed the suspect, wearing black track pants, a white sweatshirt and a hat and mask, pacing around the entrance to a garage in Long Island City, Queens while talking on the phone Thursday night.

The man then leaves the garage and walks across the street to a brand new Mercedes, parked on Jackson Avenue, near Queens Boulevard, and opened fire on Bryan, who was sitting in the driver’s seat.
After the shooting, the gunman hopped into a dark SUV around the corner on Queens Boulevard, and fled the area with a getaway driver, cops said.
Bryan, 50, had just written and produced the movie “Equal Standard,” starring his friend Ice-T. He was also a reported longtime friend of the rapper Nas.
“It’s the why that’s killing the whole family. He didn’t have any enemies out there, not from what I know,” Gilbert Cantres, a lifelong friend who was once married to Bryan’s sister, said.
“That was my brother,” he said. “He was my brother-in-law, but he was more like a brother to me.”
On Friday, Ice-T tweeted that his friend and collaborator left behind a wife and daughter.
“MFs Killed my friend last night,” Ice-T wrote alongside of a picture of the two of them hanging out with Mobb Depp rapper Havoc and another friend.
“I’m not in a good place behind this. Taheim was a GOOD dude making Positive moves.”
