(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - Authorities in Brooklyn say the bullet that killed 1-year-old Antiq Hennis Sunday night while his parents pushed him in his stroller was meant for his father.
Antiq's father, Anthony Hennis, was reportedly taking the boy to see his grandparents when four bullets were fired, one of them fatally striking the child, according to CBS New York.
Police have been trying to interview Hennis, who has an extensive arrest record, but say he is not cooperating with the investigation, according to the station.
So far, no arrests have been made, but police have a lead on a suspect, reports the station. A reward of $22,000 has been offered.
This is a tragedy for his parents, the family, for the entire community and for this entire city," New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "Every child in our city is precious, and every child deserves our protection. And when a child dies, we all suffer, and we all grieve."The shooting took place just blocks away from the city's West Indian Day Parade.
