The shocking attack was captured on video showing the shooters sprinting out of a red car and running toward their target as one brandished an assault rifle and the other a handgun.
The attackers then raced toward their idling vehicle and jumped into the backseat before their getaway driver sped off, footage showed.
Dixon, a father of a five-year-old girl, was shot multiple times and transported to Einstein Medical Center, where he later died, police said.
The victim’s heartbroken mother, Lisa Dixon, showed up Wednesday at the crime scene, struggling to make sense of what happened.

“I’m just hurt. I’m searching for answers. I just need to see him. I came back here because I just need to be where he was last alive,” she told 6ABC, fighting back tears.
“He didn’t deserve this. He didn’t deserve this. My son did not deserve to die like this.”
Police are looking for two shooters and one accomplice who were seen leaving the scene in a 2009 red Mazda 3 sedan with New Jersey plates.
“I don’t know who’s raising these children, but they [the attackers] don’t care. They have no empathy,” Lisa said.

PHILLY RESIDENTS WARNED TO BE ‘VIGILANT’
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw asked residents to stay vigilant after a spat of board daylight shootings has plagued the city.
On Friday, police released a surveillance video of a separate shooting involving at least three shooters who opened fire on a group standing outside a north Philly Liberty Gas Station shop on Thursday evening.
Investigators found over 20 spent shell casings, including rifle rounds, scattered in the gas station parking lot and on a nearby street.
The storefront was peppered by gunfire and nearby parked cars were also hit.
Chief Inspector Scott Small said investigators believe at least three gunmen walked up to a ground standing outside the shop and started firing.
The victims took cover inside the shop and no one was injured by gunfire.
