A Brooklyn man walking with his daughter was killed in a shooting on Sunday evening in the Bronx. 
Anthony Robinson, 29, was found on the ground with a gunshot wound to the chest in front of 221 East 170th St., according to police. 
He is seen on surveillance video walking with his daughter when a passenger in a car pulled a gun on him as he crossed the street. 
His friends say he lived in East New York and used to go to the Bronx to visit family or to work. 
People who were friends with him for years tell News 12 he had three kids - the youngest one born just a few months ago. 
They say he was a good father and would also help his family members. Robinson’s friends say they just saw him recently and that they can’t imagine how his kids are feeling right now. 
Police say the incident is still under investigation at this time. They say no arrests have been made.
