Harrowing surveillance footage captured the moment a man was fatally shot while crossing a Bronx street — hand-in-hand with his 6-year-old daughter.
The clip, tweeted by Rodney Harrison , the NYPD’s Chief of Detectives, opens with Anthony Robinson approaching the intersection of Sheridan Avenue and East 170th Street in Mount Eden around 5:50 p.m. Sunday.
Clasping his young daughter’s left hand in his right, Robinson, 29, stops at a crosswalk to eye a dark sedan slowing next to them, appearing to check whether the driver was turning into their path.
But the driver continues to roll along next to father and daughter as they cross Sheridan Avenue, the video shows.
Nearly out of the crosswalk, Robinson turns as though to say something to his daughter — leaving his back to the sedan.
The shooter then sticks a handgun out of the passenger-side window and opens fire, striking Robinson in the chest.
As Robinson crumples to the pavement, his terrified daughter takes off running down Sheridan Avenue, apparently unharmed, the footage shows.Robinson, a resident of East New York, Brooklyn, was pronounced dead at BronxCare Health System.His murder was one of eight across the city on a bloody Fourth of July weekend , his shooting one of at least 49.Authorities are yet to make an arrest in the case, and ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
