Shocking video shows Bronx muggers shoot victim who fought back

A shocking new video shows a pair of armed thieves shoot a man who tried to fight back during a robbery in The Bronx, cops said Tuesday.

The violent episode unfolded around 8:30 p.m. on May 16 when two thugs pulled guns on a 31-year-old man and a 38-year-old man outside 1534 Selwyn Ave., cops said.

One of the gunmen pistol-whipped the younger man and grabbed a bag with roughly $2,500 inside from the other, according to police.

The 31-year-old can be seen fighting back in the video, punching one of the gunmen in the face.

But he tripped while running around parked cars and tumbled into the middle of the road, the video shows.
