Dad seen as target in baby slaying
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 Sunday 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 the investigation, Kelly said. Hennis, 21, had gone to pick up Antiq at the home of the baby's mother and take him to visit Hennis' grandmother. Hennis put the boy in the stroller and was pushing him across a street when shots rang out, police said.
