A man was fatally shot in the Bronx on Sunday as he held the hand of his six-year-old daughter while they crossed the street, surveillance footage shows.

The graphic video shows a man at the intersection of Sheridan Ave. and East 170th Street around 6 p.m. with his daughter at his side. The video was originally posted by New York Police Department chief of detectives Rodney Harrison, and the victim was Anthony Robinson, 29, according to the New York Post.


As he crosses the street, a black sedan slowly pulls up to Robinson’s left, prompting him to pause and look at the sedan, the video shows. The car rolls across the street at about the same pace as Robinson and his daughter.

When Robinson and his daughter reach the other side of the street, he turns away from the sedan and says something to his daughter, the video shows.

At that moment, the shooter sticks a gun out of the passenger window and fires at Robinson, hitting him in the chest, according to the New York Post. He was hit multiple times, according to Harrison.

Robinson falls to the pavement, as his daughter and a bystander run off to the right, appearing to be physically unharmed, the video shows.

Robinson was taken by ambulance to the BronxCare Health System, where he was pronounced dead, the New York Post reported. (RELATED: 6 Children Shot And Killed Over Fourth Of July Weekend)
