Authorities on 2 coasts team up to probe NY ambush

NEW YORK (AP) -- Investigators on two coasts are working together to search for a suspect and a motive in the execution-style slaying of a Los Angeles man in broad daylight in midtown Manhattan.

Police officials in New York say they're in touch with authorities in Los Angeles. They're trying to get a clearer picture of why anyone would want Brandon Lincoln Woodard dead -- and take extreme measures to make it happen.

New York Police Department investigators are examining three phones carried by Woodard when he flew to New York City on Sunday. Two were found on his body and one in luggage he left at his hotel.

Associated Press writers Robert Jablon in Los Angeles and Ken Ritter in Las Vegas contributed to this report.
