    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?

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