Video shows an SUV involved in the fatal shooting of John Edwards in New York

A new video shows the SUV whose occupants are wanted in connection with the July 4 fatal shooting of an innocent Bronx bystander known as the “grandfather of the block.”

Footage released late Tuesday shows an SUV driving down the block while some gunshots could be seen from the passenger-side window.

John Edwards, 62, who was not the intended target, was punched in the chest around 10:30 p.m. Monday on Prospect Avenue near East 187th Street in the Belmont neighborhood, authorities said.

He died in the arms of a friend.

“I’ve known him since I was 10,” neighbor Rachel Sanchez said of Edwards. “We are his family.”

Sanchez, 30, said Edwards is known to locals as the grandfather or godfather of the neighborhood where she grew up.

“He sat in that chair every day,” she said. “That was his section. When you needed the pump, he turned the pump on. If you wanted your car cleaned, he would clean your car. When we were grilling and the girl was too busy cleaning, he would clean the grill. If you were heartbroken, he knew it.

“He knew how to make you feel better,” Sanchez said. “He will be missed.”

Two other people were injured in the shooting – a 23-year-old man was shot in the right leg and a 26-year-old man was shot in the right arm, police officers said.

Over the holiday weekend, more than 50 people were shot dead – at least seven of them fatally – in the Big Apple.
