"This is how he negotiates, huh?"
Prohaszka to John Healy[src]

The Assassination of Mister Prohaszka was an attempt by John Healy to kill the mobster known as Prohaszka.


"Metal and oil. Fresh, never been fired. Take a whiff."
"Like a good revolver better. No chance of jamming up."
"Man. Look at this. This is top of the line. I guarantee this baby will not jam or my name ain't Turk Barrett."
Turk Barrett and John Healy[src]

John Healy was hired by Wilson Fisk in order to kill Prohaszka, so Healy approached Turk Barrett and purchased a handgun to commit the murder.[6]


"Get this moron out of my face."
"Hey, come on."
"Whoa, whoa. Hey!"
"You got a bad attitude, friend."
Prohaszka and John Healy[src]

John Healy went to Whitestone Lanes bowling alley where Prohaszka was playing, he first approached the woman behind the counter and politely asked if he could play, she informed him that only Prohaszka could play when he wanted. Healy walked over to Prohaszka and asked him if he could play with him, Healy was rudely refused and pushed away by his bodyguards. Healy defended himself and attacked his bodyguards, causing them to flee before drawing his gun.

Healy then attempted to shoot Prohaszka, telling him he had a bad attitude, but the gun jammed. Prohaszka attacked Healy with a bowling ball and the two engaged in a brief but vicious fight, Healy managed to break his target's arm before killing him by crushing his face with a bowling ball.[6]


"I want a lawyer."
John Healy[src]

The New York City Police Department were called by the attendant who quickly fled the scene. Knowing there was no escape, John Healy quickly hid the gun in a pinball machine before the police arrived. Healy then surrendered and calmly asked for a lawyer as he was handcuffed and taken away.[6]
