A shocking new video shows a pair of armed thieves shoot a man who tried to fight back during a robbery in The Bronx, cops said Tuesday.

The violent episode unfolded around 8:30 p.m. on May 16 when two thugs pulled guns on a 31-year-old man and a 38-year-old man outside 1534 Selwyn Ave., cops said.

One of the gunmen pistol-whipped the younger man and grabbed a bag with roughly $2,500 inside from the other, according to police.

The 31-year-old can be seen fighting back in the video, punching one of the gunmen in the face.

But he tripped while running around parked cars and tumbled into the middle of the road, the video shows.

The two men, then, opened fire on him, striking him several times in the torso, according to the video and cops.

The man was rushed to Bronx Lebanon Hospital, where he was in stable condition.

The gunmen jumped in a black sedan and fled south on Morris Avenue, cops said.

No arrests have been made.
