A burst of gunfire struck and killed a one-year-old boy as his parents pushed his stroller across the street in New York on Sunday night.

A witness told the New York Post that she heard three to four gun shots at the scene of the crime in Brooklyn, followed by a man screaming “my baby got shot!” The victim, Antiq Hennis, was hit in the face and pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

“The baby’s chest was moving, but his head was tilted to the side,’’ said the witness, Gina Gamboa. “There was blood all over the stroller.’’

Police have made no arrests yet in the case. The Post reported that the father may have been the target of the attack.
