A one-year-old shot this weekend and killed by a bullet to the head in New York has activists and neighbors of the Hennis family claiming that they know who the killer is, and that the shooter is still “out there.” Police and the Brooklyn community at large are working together to bring this baby killer to justice, and while law officials continue to search for the murderer of the one-year-old boy, it is believed that they have his identity confirmed, UPI reports this Tuesday, Sept. 3.
The one-year-old shot was Antiq Hennis, who suffered a bullet to the head and soon died from the gun wound. Early investigations believe that the gunshot may have been aimed for his father, who was pushing the baby in the stroller before the shooting.
Activists connected with the Hennis’ shooting are now coming forward to say they have a pretty clear idea of who the killer is, and are working to bring the individual to justice soon.
“We know exactly who the shooter is,” one activist, Tony Herbert, claimed today. “He’s out there. We are making efforts to bring him in.”
One-year-old Antiq Hennis died this Sunday evening after being suddenly shot in the head by a stray bullet that is thought to have been aimed to kill his father instead, Anthony Hennis.
Anthony Hennis is reportedly said to not be cooperating with the police investigation, though he was understandably reported to have "gone crazy" after discovering his son had been shot in the street.. He has been placed under arrest an alleged 20 times in previous years.
“He has not answered questions,” confirmed Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. “We’re still trying to, obviously, determine his contacts -- and he has an extensive arrest record, so we are looking into his relationships.”
Some leads into the one-year-old who was shot and killed this weekend have not been confirmed (including that of the activists’ claims of knowing the identity of the killer), but Brooklyn police are saying that they are making progress in this sad case.
“We have some leads, and those leads are being aggressively followed.”
