Man was shot dead while walking with his 6-year-old daughter in the Bronx


The New York Police Department (NYPD) on Monday posted surveillance footage of the shooting, which occurred on July 5, on Twitter.

When Robinson paused to speak to her daughter, the images show that a person in the vehicle pulled a gun out the window and shot Robinson, who immediately fell to the ground. Then your daughter can be seen running away.

Robinson, who was shot in the chest multiple times, was transported to the BronxCare Health System where he was pronounced dead, a New York police spokesman told CNN. No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the incident should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
