A 35-year-old father was shot to death in the lobby of his Bronx apartment building Saturday in what appeared to be a targeted killing, authorities said.

A surveillance camera inside the Hoe Avenue property captured the killing of Najai Sow, 35, who was shot three times in his mid-section by suspected gunman Vincent Gibson, 42, about 5:40 p.m., according to the NYPD.

Charges against Vincent were pending Tuesday.

The surveillance footage shows a safety-mask clad killer walk up to Sow as he stands among a group of several other men. The gunman calmly opens fire into Sow’s torso, then flees the building.

Sow died at Lincoln hospital. A motive for the homicide has not been made public by investigators.
