Three other men, aged 27, 35, and 36, were also wounded in the attack but suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
In newly released video from the NYPD, two men can be seen, one of whom has his face covered by a bandanna, looking at their phones.
In a second video, a man can be seen walking insider a building along with a case or speaker.
Little Davell was murdered while sitting in his stroller around 11:35pm.
The young New York City family had enjoyed a cookout with loved ones earlier in the day and were still at the park.

Suddenly, two men dressed in black approached the area, opened fire with a gun and quickly fled the scene as chaos ensued. The child's stroller was left behind at the scene.
Davell's shooting was one of 11 incidents in which 16 people in New York were shot over the weekend
Davell Gardner, one, was shot in the stomach and later died in hospital 
Mayor Bill de Blasio later observed a moment of silence and declared himself 'heartbroken' over the boy's death, part of a recent surge of gun violence in the city. 
'It's just horrifying,' de Blasio said at the time. 
Three other men in the area at the time of the shooting were injured, but survived the incident.
No charges have been filed yet and local police have urged residents to come forward with information in the case to bring justice for Davell.
Last month, surveillance video was released that captured the incident.
The clip shows the two suspects running after four adults and pointing the weapons in their direction.

The boy's grandma Samantha had earlier told The New York Daily News: 'So, when is it going to end? When are these young African American men, when are they going to stop with the shooting and the killing of all these innocent kids? It don’t make any sense.'
Calling Davell  the 'joy' in her life, she added: 'They need to stop this gun violence. I feel like this: You all are ranting and raving about black lives. But you take a life that was only a year and half old. And it’s not fair.'
She added: 'I hope they catch the b******s and put them under the jail cell.'

'The baby was with his family enjoying a Sunday night in the Summer when someone started shooting,' Chief Jeffrey Maddrey of the NYPD Chief of Community Affairs Bureau tweeted. 
'Three people were injured and the baby was killed. This. Must. STOP! We as a community, we as a police department denounce this disgusting violence.'
'These are the very real people affected by senseless gun violence,' NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea tweeted as he asked anyone with information to contact police back in July.
