LAUDERHILL (CBSMiami) – The Lauderhill Police Department has released surveillance video of a fatal shooting outside a fish market.

Surveillance tape was rolling as Gary Wallock and a woman exited The Lobster and Seafood Warehouse, located at 1854 NW 38 Avenue, on Monday.

While Wallock was preparing to put away a bag in the trunk of a black sedan, a man approached him from behind.

The man – who was wearing a red cap with black rim, red T-shirt, dark-colored jeans and black shoes – ran toward Wallock and shot him at point-blank range.

The video showed Wallock scrambling to the driver-side of the car before stumbling to the ground as the shooter continued to unload.

The woman tried ducking for cover before finally fleeing.

The gunman noticed the woman running off and began to shoot at her from a distance.

After a few shots, the shooter took off, jumping over hedges.

"This was a straight up execution," said Lt. Greg Solowsky, spokesperson for the Lauderhill Police Department. "This was a cold, calculated homicide. The suspect laid in wait and victimized both victims that had no idea what was going on."

Surveillance video showed that the killer followed Wallock, arriving in this car just seconds after Wallock pulled into the parking lot.

As Wallock and his girlfriend shopped inside the seafood market, police said the gunman waited outside the back of the business.

Solowsky says they are trying to figure out the motive to kill Wallock.

"He actually is a very, very good guy," Solowsky said. "Hardworking individual. Has stayed in the county for some time."

Police said they've reached out to police in Jamaica, where Wallock is from, to dig deeper into his background.

For now, they want his killer caught and locked up and they're urging anyone in the community with information to call police.

"They have a moral obligation in order to seek closure for the family, to speak for the victim and help investigators do what needs to be done and it's obviously to take this cold blooded killer off the streets as quickly as possible," Solowsky said.

Police said the getaway vehicle, which was not seen on surveillance, is a 2010 Nissan Altima with dark tinted windows and Florida tag EZX-F13.

Investigators said there was a second person in the blue 4-door car.

Authorities have not released a description of the shooter's accomplice.
