Three suspects in the murder of Anthony Robinson, 28, have been arraigned in Bronx, New York. Davon Delks, 21, Devon Vines, 27, and Laquan Heyward, 25, are each charged with murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, and criminal possession of a weapon, according to The New York Daily News.
As seen on video, the victim and his six-year-old daughter were walking through an intersection at E. 170th St. and Sheridan Ave. on July 5. A sedan pulled up parallel to the man and his daughter. A hand holding a pistol emerged from a passenger side window and shot Robinson. He later died at an area hospital.
“He’s loved,” Cousin Michael Parker said, according to WPIX-TV. “He’ll be remembered. He’s going to live through us.”

The New York Police Department released footage of the incident in a bid to find whoever was responsible. Now Delks, Vines, and Heyward in custody. A fourth man, Joel Baba, 22, was also allegedly involved, but he was killed that same day in a double homicide, officers said.
Vines and Heyward were arraigned Thursday. Delks went to court Friday. The motive for the killing wasn’t immediately clear.
