A shocking video recorded the moment that a 46-year-old man was shot and killed in the middle of the day while pumping gas in Brooklyn on Saturday.

The victim, who has not been identified, was getting gas in Crown Heights around noon when he was fatally shot in the chest.

The clerk who was working at the station told the New York Daily News that the victim had just paid $40 for gas and used the bathroom when he walked back out to his vehicle and was killed, News12 Brooklyn reported.

The blurry video shows the two men running up to the car and approaching the unsuspecting victim. It was not clear if the victim was the intended target of the attack

“He went outside and put the nozzle in his car. I turned back to the register, and I heard the pop,’ the clerk said.

In an interview with CBS2, the same clerk said he saw the bullet go through the victim’s chest.

Hector Sanabria, 27, who works across the street said the man collapsed and was crawling with blood flowing from his chest.

Ambulances raced the victim to the hospital to try and save his life, but it was too late.

Authorities are now on the hunt for two men who were seen in the surveillance footage and are said to have fled down Atlantic Avenue, away from the crime scene.
