This Is What They Saw.

The body of Salvatore Sutera, 27, lies in front of 202 Mott St., where it was found at 4:45 p.m. Thursday. He had been shot in the mouth, and was dead when police arrived. Bloody footprints in the hallway indicated he had been shot there and staggered to the sidewalk. He was a salesman, had no police record and had not been robbed. Detectives thought last night it was a case of mistaken identity. Weegee, our photographer, took this picture and then turned his camera on the watching crowd and got the picture printed on the preceding page.
