A one-year-old boy was shot dead in his pushchair as he was out with his parents early today. The child, 16-month-old Antiq Hennis, was hit by a bullet to the head after a gunman unleashed a volley of shots on a Brooklyn street.New York, of course, has one of the toughest gun control schemes in the States. Works well, eh?
Detectives were investigating claims that the boy’s father Anthony was the intended target and he escaped the attack by fleeing.
Witnesses said he returned to the scene at the corner of Bristol Street and Livonia Avenue in Brownsville minutes later to find his child lying in a pool of blood.What an absolute prince of a man! Truly, prime breeding stock there.
Local lawyer Tony Herbert, referring to police claims that the father of the boy was the intended target, said the gunman should give himself up as he was being hunted down by every policeman in New York.
"Whether this was a beef over something in the past, what should've been done is that individual who was targeted should've been given a pass because he had his child with him” he added.Ah. I suppose the notion that maybe people shouldn’t shoot each other over a ‘beef’ might seem a little too quaint?
