Horrific moment father-of-two, 35, is fatally shot in the head in broad daylight in NYC


A man was fatally shot in the head in broad daylight during a dispute outside a Bronx bodega late Friday afternoon, police have said.

The victim, 35, was killed outside of G&K Deli on Rosedale Ave. near East Tremont Avenue in Parkchester at around 5:15pm.

He had been arguing with three other men outside the store when one of them struck him in the head, and then another man shot him, according to the NYPD.

The man, who has not yet been named but is reported to be a father-of-two, was rushed to the nearby Jacobi Hospital but he was pronounced dead soon after arriving. 

The shooter, meanwhile, ditched the gun at the scene and the three men jumped into a car and fled.

The victim and the man exchange words, when a second man emerges from inside the store, also wearing all black but with his face visible.

The victim and the second man then appear to become involved in a heated dispute. 

The victim attempts to walk away when a third man emerges from inside the store, blocking the doorway.

The second suspect then punches the victim in the face, sending him hurtling backwards into an ice machine.

Visibly dazed, the victim staggers towards the road and appears to pull a hand gun out of his right jacket pocket and then moving his hands in a cocking motion. 

The man in the hooded sweatshirt then draws a weapon and fires a single shot toward the victim, striking him in the head.

The victim falls face-first onto the sidewalk with great force and is left lying motionless on the floor.

The shooter and the second man immediately flee in the opposite direction.

The third man re-emerges from the bodega and runs in the same direction as the other assailants, glancing back at the victim as he flees.

The entire ordeal lasted just over 20 seconds. 

One witness, who identified himself as a friend of the victim, told the New York Daily News how he watched on as paramedics attempted to revive him.

‘He was face up. The EMTs were trying to push life back into him,’ witness Frankie Lugo said. ‘He got shot in the head. He looked like he was gone already.’

Lugo, 25, said the victim is survived by two sons, one of whom is an infant.

‘He was a friend to a lot of people in the neighborhood. Lots of people cared about him.’

The victim’s name is being withheld pending family notification, police said. 

He reportedly lived just doors away from the bodega. 

The New York Police Department has not yet returned a DailyMail.com request seeking further information.  

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this individual is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
