In brief: 1-year-old’s death may be gang-related

From Wire Reports
 

NEW YORK – Police investigating the death of a 1-year-old boy shot in the head in his stroller said Monday they believe his father was the target.

Authorities have some leads in the killing of Antiq Hennis on a Brooklyn street Sunday night and believe his death may be gang-related, police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. Antiq’s father, Anthony Hennis, has a criminal record and wasn’t cooperating with police, Kelly said.

Hennis, 21, had just picked up Antiq at the home of the baby’s mother, Cherise Miller, and taken him to visit Hennis’ grandmother, police said. Hennis was pushing the boy in a stroller across a street in the Brownsville neighborhood when shots were fired, police said.

Hennis’ grandmother, Lenore Steele, said she heard shots before Hennis ran up to her.

“And he fell on the ground and said, ‘Grandma, my baby got shot! My baby got shot, Grandma!’ ” Steele said. “He was such a beautiful little baby, smiling and talking to everybody.”
