Surveillance video shows a trio of gunmen fatally shooting one man and wounding another in botched robbery

Shocking surveillance video released by cops Monday shows a trio of gunmen fatally shooting a man in the Bronx and wounding another in a chain-snatch robbery.

The crooks pointed guns at Jonathan Pena, 32, and a 46-year-old man on Macombs Road near Inwood Ave. in Mount Eden just before 5 p.m. Saturday.

They managed to maneuver their victims to stand up against a storefront, then took a gold chain from Pena, the video shows.

But when one of the victims tried to flee, swinging open a nearby door, the robbers opened fire, hitting the older man in the buttocks and Pena in the chest.

Medics took the older man to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition. A short time later, Pena was driven in a private vehicle to BronxCare Health System, where he died. He lived in the Edenwald section of the Bronx, according to cops.

Cops are asking the public’s help identifying the gunmen and tracking them down.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
