THE BRONX - Police have identified a man Thursday who was fatally shot during a robbery in the Bronx.
Vivian Duval Connell, 40, was shot in the shoulder and died Wednesday less than a mile away from his house.
Police say Connell can be seen on surveillance video waiting in front of 2231 Manning St. around 2:15 a.m. when he walks out of the frame and is shot by two suspects. They believe Connell was leaving a deli after buying groceries when he was killed.
Police say the two men removed the victim's pants, which they discarded into bushes, and wallet and believe their motive was robbery.
A makeshift memorial was placed outside of Connell's East Tremont Avenue home.
Connell has 36 prior arrests including attempted murder, robbery and reckless endangerment, according to police.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
