£20,000 a job

The professional contact killers used by big-league criminals charge about £20,000 a job. Their ranks are supplemented by part-time killers whose main source of income is from violent crimes such as robbery. These part-timers would get about £10,000 for a killing. At the bottom end of the scale are the murderers who work for drug gangs, often selling crack cocaine. They can be paid as little as £200 to shoot a rival.

Mad Georgie

"Mad Georgie," is said to be behind 23 murders. He is credited with thinking up the "motorbike hit" in which two men, whose crash helmets cover their faces, use a powerful off-road scrambler motorcycle. The killers will speed up to their target, and the pillion rider will jump off, shooting his victim with a handgun or sawn-off shotgun. The two men then flee on the motorcycle, taking a predetermined route.

20 professional hitmen are operating from the south-east of England

The Metropolitan Police has estimated that up to 20 professional hitmen are operating from the south-east of England, charging between £1,000 and £20,000 for each murder. Concern is growing at the growing number of contract killings and the use of hitmen to commit professional murders throughout the country, and at the sophisticated techniques being used by the killers.
growing number of contract killings in Britain, estimated to be up to 30 a year.
A register of convicted and suspected hitmen and the techniques used by contract killers is being compiled to help police catch professional murderers. The initiative follows concern at the growing number of contract killings in Britain, estimated to be up to 30 a year.
Police experts have drawn up four main categories of "hits" - disputes over the payments of debts or financial dealings; disputes over drugs; domestic arguments between former lovers; and fighting between rival organised crime groups.
Investigators are to be urged to concentrate attention on the person who wanted the contract killing carried out, the person who organised the hit, the killer, and who supplied the firearm if one was used.

Mexican Mafia implicated in Contract Killings

The Mexican Mafia operate on a paramilitary structure, complete with a president, vice president, and numerous generals, captains, lieutenants and sergeants. Below these high-ranking members are soldiers, also known as "carnales," as well as suppliers and associates, all of whose activities are overseen by the generals. Only one general operates in the federal prison system, while another one operates in the state prison system. The state general appoints a committee of lieutenants and captains who command prison units across the entire state.

"The criminals virtually riddled the car with bullets," the source said.

Unknown assailants sprayed a Mercedes car with automatic gunfire late on Sunday killing two men in southwestern Moscow, local police said on Monday.
The attackers pumped at least 40 bullets into the vehicle killing the driver and his passenger instantly. The victims aged 42 and 37, were from Vladikavkaz in Russia's North Caucasus Republic of North Ossetia and were involved in the wholesale alcohol trade.
According to preliminary reports, the murders are thought to be linked with their business activities.
