Horror moment man walking dog shot dead by muggers as grieving mum pays tribute

Shocking CCTV footage has captured the moment a man was shot dead by muggers while out walking his dog.

Milan Loncar was a recent graduate of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – but his promising future was stolen from him when he was brutally killed on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old was accosted by two men while walking his dachshund-chihuahua mix dog named Roo at approximately 7pm in the evening.

Footage from the scene of the crime has captured the two suspects as they patrolled the streets of Philadelphia before stopping Milan and pulling a gun on him.

The vile pair then search the engineering graduate while holding a gun at his chest – and the suspect holding the gun then fires a shot before the pair flee the scene.

Milan made a desperate call for help on his phone and was rushed to hospital but was sadly pronounced dead on arrival at 7.30pm.

Family of Milan have shared their devastation at their loss in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Heartbroken mum, Amy Lounsberry, has described him as a “beloved sweet boy just starting his life” and is sad to see his life cut short just as he was making strides in life.

She said: "He was going to move in with his girlfriend in March, he had graduated and had his first job and was just starting out.

"I don't know why they did it, I can't understand. They didn't get any money, did they need it so badly, were they trying to show off?"

The devastated mother continued: "I was so proud of him and everybody that he worked with, everybody he knew, they all said how he was doing so well. Everybody loved him."

She added: "He is so missed and we are trying to pull together and get everybody through."

Police are offering a $20,000 reward (£14,700) to anyone who gives information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

They released footage and photos of the two suspects who are shown running from the scene wearing dark clothes and hooded jackets.

While the devastated family, determined for justice, have launched a GoFundMe page to increase the money for the police reward – already raising over $42,000 (£30,900).

The appeal states: “It is paramount that these individuals are caught before they have the chance to callously take another life that did not belong to them. It is not a matter of if they will do this again, it is a matter of when.”
