Hedge fund founder shot in head and killed


Sad to report.

Wainscott Capital Management founder Thomas Gilbert Sr. was shot in the head and killed at his Beekman Place apartment in Manhattan Sunday, prompting investigators to seek his son, according to the New York City Police Department.

Bloomberg News reports that Thomas Gilbert Jr., 30, was taken into custody at his Manhattan residence and was being questioned, a police spokesman said shortly after 1 a.m. in New York. The son hasn’t been charged with a crime, the spokesman said.

Authorities responded to a call about 3:30 p.m. on Sunday and found the father, 70, in a bedroom of the eighth-floor unit. The investor and his son were discussing differences in their relationship before the incident, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing an unidentified law enforcement official.
