Police are trying to track down the killer who asked his victim a bizarre question before killing him.

Investigators say a gunman approached a man in Mid-city yesterday and asked him if he was "someone from the laundromat."

When the man said no, the gunman shot him five times. The 42-year-old victim later died in the hospital.

The shooting happened in the 2500 block of Gravier Street in broad daylight, around 1:30 pm.
