Posted: Updated:

A man was fatally shot in broad daylight at a Crown Heights gas station on Saturday.

The 46-year-old victim was pumping gas at the BP station at Utica and Atlantic avenues when he was shot in the chest around 2 p.m.

The man was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He has not been identified.

News 12 obtained exclusive video from a resident who did not want to be identified. In it, two suspects are seen talking near the gas station before walking over to the victim, who has his back to the suspects. The victim then suddenly turns around, and then is shot.

Police are looking for two black men between the ages of 19 and 20.
