Keyot Marks was a convicted killer lucky enough to get paroled early in 2009.
But his luck ran out last weekend, when someone gunned him down in Strawberry Mansion. Police have no suspects or motive yet.
Marks, 35, of Greeby Street near Charles in Mayfair, was shot in the head just after 2:30 a.m. Sunday on Edgely Street near 29th, said Officer Jillian Russell, a police spokeswoman. Paramedics declared him dead on the scene.
Marks was convicted in 2003 of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to seven to 14 years in prison for a July 7, 2001, gun murder, according to court records. He was paroled to a halfway house in February 2009, returned to prison on a parole violation in September 2011 and paroled again in September 2012, said Susan McNaughton, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections.
Russell had no details on whether his prior murder conviction had anything to do with his slaying, and homicide detectives couldn't be reached this morning.
