FOOJ make a living through lowsec piracy and sending scouts to mission hubs looking for potential juicy targets which are then stalked by their very small gangs until an adequate occasion arises. They are indeed quite efficient at what they do.
In this particular case, Lee Adams was scanned down with a typical Serpentis missioning tank. Quickly arranging their numbers, a fleet comprised by seven alpha Tornados and a couple extra ships waited for the Paladin to come into Fricoure after finishing a mission. Loot alts were in position, Fusion was loaded, the target was set to -10 for more convenient spotting, and security was disabled.
Once the Paladin jumped, FOOJ made short work of it.
According to the ganking squad, Lee Adams was quite cool about it, and even managed hearty congratulations to the killers.
