A one-year-old boy shot in his stroller died Sun. night after a bullet hit him in the head. Huffington Post reports Sept. 2 that Antiq Hennis of Brooklyn was fatally shot when his father was walking him across a city street. It's believed that his father, Anthony Hennis, was the intended target.
The boy's father had just picked him up from the home of his mother's -- Cherise Miller. They were on their way to his grandmother's home in the Brownsville neighborhood when shots were heard being fired around 7:20 p.m. Antiq was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital, but died just before 9 p.m.
A witness, Gina Gamboa, described the incident after the boy was shot in his stroller.
"I saw a man with a stroller screaming: `My baby got shot! My baby got shot,'" she said.
She added that the boy's father "was going crazy."
Four shot were fired from the gunman, but only one bullet hit Antiq. No arrests have been made in the case and the community is urging anyone affiliated with the suspect to turn him in. Anthony Hennis had more than 20 arrests on his record and it's believed the gunman was trying to settle a score.
The report further stated that Antiq is the sixteenth child to be shot under the age of 16 since mid-May in Brooklyn and the second one to die.
