One person remained in the vehicle with the motor running, while the other, dressed in a suit, stepped out, looked casually around and strolled to the front door.

After ringing the doorbell, he checked his surroundings again while reaching under his coat. As the door opened, he brought the silenced pistol out as he stepped forward, expecting to push the woman back inside where he could shoot the wheelchair-bound victim out of sight from the street.
