MT. EDEN, the Bronx — Police arrested three people Thursday in connection with the shooting death of a dad gunned down as he crossed a Bronx street with his daughter.

Davon Delks, 21, Laquan Heyward, 25 and Devon Vines, 27, were all arrested on murder charges.

Anthony Robinson, 29, was holding his 6-year-old daughter’s hand when he was fatally shot on July 6. Video showed Robinson, hand in hand with his 6-year-old daughter, look to his left at a Bronx intersection and crosswhen a car paused to let them go. The driver then pulled up and someone in the vehicle opened fire, striking Robinson repeatedly.

Robinson collapsed to the ground at East 170th Street and Sheridan Avenue. Video shows his daughter run as the car speeds off.

Family members said Robinson was a father of two. Cousin Michael Parker said Robinson would be missed.

“He’s loved. He’ll be remembered,” Parker said. “He’s going to live through us.”
