A Mexico City street surveillance camera captured the horrifying moment an alleged gang member pretended to be disabled before he gunned down a 49-year-old businessman on Monday.
Footage leaked on Twitter by a local reporter shows the gunman being pushed down a street by an accomplice in the Merced Gómez neighborhood at 6.53am while other gang members wait nearby inside two vehicles.
The video shows victim Daniel Miranda pulling out of condominium’s parking in an SUV. As he pulls out, the hitman is seen rising from his wheelchair and walking round the corner where he opens fire on Miranda’ car.

According to Mexican newspaper El Gráfico, Miranda’s murder was carried out by members of local gang led by Jonathan ‘Lenin’ Canchola for refusing to pay extortion fees for the right to operate his fitness center, Olympia.
Canchola, whose gang reportedly operates out of the Mexico City boroughs of Cuajimalpa y Álvaro Obregón, is wanted authorities for long list of crimes that include kidnappings, extortions, robberies and drug dealing.
Miranda survived an August 2018 assassination attempt that left his brother, Juan, dead, when Canchola’s gang assassins shot up the same vehicle Miranda was driving at the moment of his death.
