NEW YORK — Police investigating the death of a 1-year-old boy shot in the head in his stroller said Monday they believe his father was the target.
Authorities have some leads in the killing of Antiq Hennis on a Brooklyn street on Sunday night and believe his death may be gang-related, police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. Antiq’s father, Anthony Hennis, has a criminal record and wasn’t cooperating with police in their investigation, said Kelly.
Hennis, 21, had just gone to pick up Antiq at the home of the baby’s mother, Cherise Miller, and take him to visit Hennis’s grandmother, police said. Hennis put the boy in the stroller and was pushing him across a street in the Brownsville neighborhood when shots rang out, police said. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
