It took one bullet in the back of the head to kill a 31-year-old man visiting Manhattan on Monday, in a shocking, broad-daylight attack near Columbus Circle and Carnegie Hall, a police source said Monday.

The victim, whose identification indicated he hailed from Los Angeles, was rushed to Roosevelt Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The gunman used a silver semi-automatic pistol to kill the man, placing the gun right to his victim’s head, while they were in front of Saint Thomas Choir School, which is near the intersection of W. 58th St. and Seventh Ave.

The 2 p.m. attack startled shoppers and tourists on the clogged streets of the busy Manhattan neighborhood near Central Park.
