(CNN) -- A 1-year-old boy was shot and killed as his parents pushed his stroller across a Brooklyn street Sunday evening, New York City police said.

 

The parents of Antiq Hennis were pushing the stroller across Livonia Avenue, near their home, about 7:19 p.m. when the child was shot in the left side of the head, a police statement said. He was pronounced dead on arrival at Brookdale Hospital.

 

The police statement offered no details on the circumstances of the shooting and said no arrests had been made.

 

The shooting came two days after a Georgia jury convicted an 18-year-old man of murder in the shooting of a 1-year-old baby in a stroller in the coastal city of Brunswick.

 

De'Marquise Elkins faces a mandatory life sentence in the March 21 killing of Antonio Santiago. The child's mother said Elkins shot her and the baby after demanding money.

I hate reading these stories.  I have a 2 year old son and couldn't imagine this happening to him. I would be devastated.  I also have two daughters (6 and 8) and if anything happened to them I wouldn't know what to do.

I thought gun control makes us safer. Obviously not the case and its obvious that this isn't the work of some law abiding gun owner.

The difference is you are in Canada and this happened in Brooklyn.

Another victim of the United States of Guns.

 

I wonder when the NRA are going to appear and say the child might have survived if it also had a gun?

Eh.. people still have guns in Canada.  Granted they are for hunting moose and whales during the 2 months of summer, and 10/12 months are spent in Igloos.. it does still happen.  Snow is only so hard.

I think I would have preferred not to open this thread... I think I'll just stay out of "real world news", too much like TV news (sad and irrelevant.)

That's kind of the point of this section, to discuss real world news...

Personally one of them is a textbook case for having a gun and therefore I have nothing to say about it. This is horrific though, of course people are going to comment on it.

I agree that some of the points made here leave something to be desired. If I'm impartial to the subject of guns, their comments wouldn't help sway me to their side.

Anyway, gun control should be talked about in the appropriate thread, not here.

So was this done as some sort of tribute? How could someone intentionally shoot a baby? There are some sick people in the world...
