A shocking video surfaced showing three men shoot at a New York City father — while his terrified toddler is just a few steps away.

Police say the incident happened on Sept. 17 in the center of the district Bronx and, as of Friday, the suspects were still on the loose.

Images shows the trio approaching the father and shoot on shot at him, but missing, investigators told FOX5NY.

The father then grabs his 3-year-old daughter in an attempt to flee, but the men catch up to him and pulls the child from his arms before blasting him in the leg.

It is not clear what led to the shooting.

Police say the girl was not injured and the father was taken to a local hospital, where he is expected to recover.
