This story saddens me. Crime in the inner city is a serious problem but the Democrats don’t have the solution.
A 1-year-old Brooklyn boy was killed by a bullet that had his father’s name on it, police sources said.
Antiq Hennis was nestled in his stroller Sunday night, just inches from his parents, when the shot pierced his head just a block from the family’s Riverdale Ave. home, cops and witnesses said.
The child’s father Anthony Hennis — the intended target, according to law enforcement sources and family members — was unharmed but distraught after the bullets started flying at Bristol St. near Livonia Ave. in Brownsville at 7:20 p.m.
“He was screaming ‘My baby got shot.’ He was going crazy,” said Gina Gamboa, 22, who saw the dad seconds after Antiq was mortally wounded. “The baby was breathing, but his eyes were closed. It’s crazy. They just will start shooting.”
At least four shots rang out. The tragic tot was the only person hit.
Little Antiq was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital with a bullet hole in the left side of his head, cops said.
He died at the hospital shortly before 9 p.m.
“He just started walking. He was vibrant. He was full of life,” said the baby’s great-uncle, Chris Dobson. “I can’t believe it.”
