A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the suspect who shot a Bronx dad in broad daylight as he held his 6-year-old daughter's hand.
Graphic CCTV video shows the moment when Anthony Robinson was shot as he used his body to shield his young daughter when a gunman fired from inside a car.
The shooting happened around 6 p.m. on July 5 at the corner of Sheridan Avenue and East 170th Street in the Bronx.
The video shows Robinson, 29, crossing the street with his daughter by his side. He turned to shield his daughter when a man opened fire from a sedan that pulled alongside them.
Someone inside the car said something to him, according to his daughter. Seconds later, shots rang out and Robinson fell to the pavement as his terrified daughter ran away.
Robinson was hit multiple times, according to the NY Post.
