Two men who were wanted in connection with the shooting death of a 1-year-old in Brooklyn Sunday have been arrested. Authorities caught them in Pennsylvania.
Antiq Hennis was the victim of a shooting on Sept. 1 at around 7:30 p.m. It was reported that Antiq’s father was the intended target. Antiq was being pushed in a stroller at the time.
NYC Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said on Friday that Daquan Breland, 23, and Daquan Wright, 19, of Brooklyn were arrested in Pennsylvania, reports The New York Times. He said that NYPD detectives traced them to a Wilkes-Barre apartment complex, where they were staying with another person. The detectives, along with the Wilkes-Barre Police Department and the United States Marshals Service, apprehended the men at 7:30 a.m. this morning.
Kelly explained that police think that Wright gave Breland a gun and Breland fired. Anthony Hennis, Antiq’s father, is believed to know the shooter, but Kelly said that he is not speaking with authorities. “He’s not answered questions,” the commissioner said.
The Times notes that Antiq’s funeral is set for this afternoon.
