2 arrested after NYC toddler shot in the face

WILKES-BARRE, Pennsylvania (AP) — Two men were arrested Friday in connection with the shooting death of a toddler in a stroller in New York City.

Authorities had been seeking Daquan Breland, 23, and Daquan Wright, 19, for questioning in Sunday’s death of 1-year-old Antiq Hennis.

New York authorities say the boy’s father was pushing him in a stroller when multiple shots were fired. The child was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police believe the father was the intended target, and the gunfire may have been gang-related.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg called the killing “a tragedy for (the child’s) family, for this community, for the entire city.”
