A father has been shot dead in front of his 6-year-old daughter during a public execution on the streets of New York City.

The footage depicts yet another brutal killing in New York as violence continues to soar under Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio's leadership.
The video shows the unidentified father get shot dead while walking across the street in the Bronx just before 6 pm Sunday, hand-in-hand with his six-year-old daughter.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison released the video showing the man gunned down.

The car speeds off as father then collapses to the ground, indicating he has been shot.
The terrified child can be seen running for her life after her father falls down.
On July 6, NBC News investigative reporter Tom Winter noted that “[there has] been a 204% increase in…[NYC] shooting victims over the past 28 days compared to last year.”
There have been 717 shooting victims on the year.
On June 29, 2020, Breitbart News reported that more than 110 people had been shot in NYC over the course of nine days.
The 110-plus victims were wounded or killed in 83 different shootings that occurred during that nine-day period, 1010WINS reported.
Following a bloody 4th of July weekend, Mayor de Blasio attempted to blame the recent surge of violent crime in the city on the coronavirus.
The mayor defended the recent policing reforms, which saw $1 billion in cuts to the NYPD with his support.
De Blasio vowed to keep New York City "the safest big city in America.”
But the city saw another weekend of violence that left at least eight people dead and more than 44 people shot and injured.
"I want to talk about what happened this weekend," de Blasio began.
"Many were out there celebrating, but we saw too much violence, and we have a lot of work to do to address it,” de Blasio said.
"This is directly related to coronavirus,” de Blasio claimed.
