Gaskin is popularly known as the “Ninja Killer” because he dressed in a full black ninja outfit to avoid identification. 

At approximately 6:02 p.m., Gaskin began receiving his lethal cocktail, causing him to breathe heavily under a white sheet as his chest rose and fell. At 6:05 p.m., the prison warden checked to see if Gaskin was still conscious, but he did not respond.

According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Florida permits death row inmates to request a last meal. For his final meal, Gaskin had barbeque pork ribs, buffalo wings, pork and turkey neck, shrimp fried rice, French fries with honey barbeque sauce, and water.
