A brazen shooting on a crowded street in the middle of the day, all caught on tape.

Grainy surveillance video from a corner store camera captured the crime. You can see the shooter jump out of a car with gun in hand, immediately shooting a man in the chest.

The shooter continues to fire multiple shots into the victim even as he crumbles to the concrete sidewalk. Then he takes off.

The target: 21-year-old Tony Hinton. He's is the only child of Yolanda Hinton, living in Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, New York. His mom tells us her son loved basketball and helping others.

But on the sidewalks of his own neighborhood, there is no help for Tony Hinton.

"Everyone was out there, people looking out their windows," said Yolanda Hinton.

Police say they have a strong person of interest in the murder, but they can't make an arrest without the help of at least one eyewitness.

If you have information about the shooting, contact the New York Police Dept. at (781) 636-6611, or contact New York Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. Callers may remain anonymous.
