    long gone/exit


    "The guy's (a hitman) probably long gone by now". Real pros exit as well as they kill.

    Does it say: The guy probably is already dead. Real professionals die as well as they kill.

    Or maybe "gone" just means that he disappeared?

    Or maybe it means something completely different?

    Re: long gone/exit

    The hitman has killed his target and has fled the area.
