Antiq Hennis: 1-year-old shot to death in stroller in NYC

Antiq Hennis was an adorable 16-month-old baby boy being pushed in his stroller about a block away from his home in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday night when at around 7:20 p.m. he was shot in the head. His mother and father had been pushing him across the street in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn when 3 or four shots that were allegedly intended for the baby's father, Anthony Hennis, were fired. Anthony Hennis was not hurt, but Antiq was not so lucky.

Antiq Hennis was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital where he was pronounced dead just before 9 p.m. This child was gunned down in the street, his life cut short, and it's absolutely absurd.

Anthony Hennis has a record, he's been arrested over 20 times in Pennsylvania and New York. It is being speculated that he was the intended target and not the baby. The thing is, I don't care what Anthony Hennis has done or did, or who he pissed off because nothing can make sense of a baby being shot while being pushed in a stroller by his parents. Tell me, who would shoot in the direction of a baby in a stroller? What kind of a monster would put a child's life in the balance like that?

Police are searching for the shooter. Let's hope they find the murderer responsible for this soon. I really hope this community comes together to help find the shooter.

My condolences to Antiq's parents, family, and loved ones. This child didn't even get a chance at life before it was ruthlessly snatched away. What a supreme and tragic waste.
