Harrowing surveillance footage emerged showing the moment a man was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting in New York on Sunday – while he was holding hands and crossing the street with his pigtailed little daughter.
The incident happened on Sheridan Ave. and E. 170th St. in the Bronx, Nydailynews reported.
Anthony Robinson, 29, had traveled from Brooklyn with his 7-year-old daughter Khloe to spend the holiday weekend in the Bronx, where Khloe’s mom lives and shares custody of the little girl with Robinson, according to the report.
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, 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’s window and opens fire, striking Robinson in the chest.
Robinson, a resident of East New York, Brooklyn, was pronounced dead at BronxCare Health System, The Post reported.
Authorities have yet to make an arrest in the case at the time of this post, and ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
