Police say the gunman had entered the bar, waited until everyone leaves and then “intentionally” fired his gun at Johnson.

Johnson, who was shot in the chest, would die about 30 minutes after the shooting at Albert Einstein Medical Center.

The shooter, investigators say, also stole a few hundred dollars before leaving the scene.
