He stopped 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 video shows the driver continuing to roll along with father & daughter duo as they crossed the Bronx street.
Then, Robinson turned around to say something to his daughter, leaving his back to the sedan. Then the shooter stuck a handgun out of the passenger’s window of the car and opened fire. Unfortunately, the bullet struck Robinson in his chest. the footage further shows his daughter running down Sheridan Avenue, apparently unharmed.
