A shocking new video shows the KO blow that killed a 61-year-old man outside his Brooklyn home late last month.
Victor Vega, 61, was walking on Lexington Avenue near Nostrand Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 8:30 p.m. on May 25 – along with two men – when the fatal attack took place, authorities said.
The men appeared to be chatting before the victim put his hand on the back of one of the two, who was wearing a black hoodie and white face mask, according to video released by the NYPD late Wednesday.
That man turned, punched Vega in the face and knocked him down in front of his home in a single punch, footage shows.
Vega landed on her back — half on the sidewalk and half on the street — with her head under a parked car.

The attacker then robbed Vegas’ bags and presented something to his accomplice, video shows.
Police are investigating whether Vega was the victim of a drug robbery.
Vega, who remained unconscious, was taken to Kings County Hospital Center, where he died five days later, police officers said.
Authorities said his death was ruled a manslaughter.
Police were still looking for the suspects Thursday.
