New York police are hunting for a gunman who shot dead a baby in a pushchair.

Antiq Hennis, one, was shot in the face as gunfire rang out in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn at 19:20 on Sunday evening (23:20 GMT).

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the target had been the boy’s father.

The boy’s parents went with him to hospital where he was declared dead from a gunshot wound to the left side of his face.

Witness Gina Gamboa, 23, told the New York Post: “I heard three to four shots.

“I saw a man with a stroller screaming: ‘My baby got shot! My baby got shot!’ He was going crazy.”

The gunfire left four bullet casings on the corner and bullet holes in the pushchair, Commissioner Kelly told reporters on Monday.

“We have some leads, and those leads are being aggressively followed,” he said.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the killing was “a tragedy for his family, for this community, for the entire city”.
