NEW YORK (AP) — A man who allegedly shot a toddler to death in his stroller on a Brooklyn street is being held without bail on a charge of second-degree murder.
Twenty-three-year-old Daquan Breland pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Saturday. Prosecutors say he fatally shot 16-month-old Antiq (An-TEEK') Hennis on Sept. 1.
Breland and 19-year-old Daquan Wright were arrested in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. on Friday and returned to New York. Wright was awaiting arraignment.
Authorities say Antiq's father was pushing him in a stroller while crossing a street in the Brownsville neighborhood when shots were fired. The child was struck on the left side of his face and later pronounced dead at a hospital.
Police believe the boy's father was the intended target.
It wasn't clear if either suspect had an attorney.
