A shocking surveillance video captured the moment a 46-year-old man was shot to death in broad daylight while pumping gas in Brooklyn in Saturday.
The victim, who has not been named, was putting gas into his white Chevy Silverado at a BP gas station in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, around noon when he was shot in the chest, according to police.
A clerk working at the gas station told the New York Daily News the man had just paid $40 for gas and used the bathroom when he walked back out to his car and was shot.

‘He went back outside and put the nozzle in his car. I turned back to the register and that’s when I heard the pop,’ the clerk told the Daily News.
The same clerk told CBS2 he saw the bullet go through his chest, saying: ‘It was a big hole’.
Hector Sanabria, 27, who works across the street told the Daily News the victim collapsed and was crawling with blood pouring from his chest.
Ambulances rushed the victim to the hospital to try and save him, but he could not be revived.
