NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD is looking for a suspect in a fatal shooting that occurred at a Bronx discount store in broad daylight.

Police say 22-year-old Steven Maldonado was shot in the chest around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

According to the Daily News (https://nydn.us/1CqVLEp ) surveillance video shows a man throwing open the door, lunging onto the sidewalk and shooting.

The victim stumbled inside and collapsed.

A passerby, Anna Concepcion, says she saw him lying face-up on the floor, bleeding.

Concepcion answered his ringing phone. She says a woman on the other end was yelling, “Was he shot?” and “Is he dead?”

A paramedic, Ernest Perez, was headed to work when he heard three shots.

Perez says instinct told him to flee from the gunfire but instead he ran inside and performed CPR.
