NEW YORK CITY’S police commissioner says investigators have some leads in the killing of a 1-year-old boy who was shot in his buggy while on a walk with his parents.
Commissioner Raymond Kelly and Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke today about the death of Antiq Hennis, who was shot on Sunday evening on a Brooklyn street.
Kelly said investigators believe the boy’s father may have been the intended target. The boy’s family couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
Bloomberg called the child’s death a tragedy for the entire city.
Kelly said Antiq’s father had just gone to pick up the boy at his mother’s when the shooting happened.
Four shots were fired, and one of them hit the boy in the left side of his head. He was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital with a gunshot wound to the left side of his face, but he was declared dead when he arrived, authorities said.
