NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s police commissioner says investigators have some leads in the killing of a 1-year-old boy who was shot in his stroller while on a walk with his parents.

Commissioner Raymond Kelly and Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke Monday about the death of Antiq Hennis, who was shot Sunday evening on a Brooklyn street.

Kelly says investigators believe the boy’s father may have been the intended target. The boy’s family couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Bloomberg calls the child’s death a tragedy for the entire city.

Kelly says Antiq’s father had just gone to pick up the boy at his mother’s when the shooting happened.

Four shots were fired, and one of them hit the boy in the left side of his head.
