NYC: Shocking video shows moment teen was shot dead outside Bronx deli

Shocking footage captures the moment a teen was fatally shot outside a Bronx deli in broad daylight.

Surveillance video obtained by ABC 7 shows the suspect tapping 16-year-old victim James Solano on his shoulder outside the King Deli and Grocery on Boston Road near East 166th Street in Morrisania around 12:10 p.m. Wednesday.

The suspect then reaches into his jacket and waits for the teen to pass him before he pulls out a gun and fires at him right outside the door of the bodega. 

The teen, who was shot once in the neck, ran into the deli, where he collapsed, cops said. 

Solano, who lived around the corner from the scene, was rushed to Lincoln Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. 

Solano and the gunman were talking in the moments before the shooting, though the motive for the attack was unclear Thursday morning.
