Another Innocent Child Killed

Struck by a bullet to the head that reportedly was intended for his father, Antiq Hennis, 1, died Sunday in Brownsville, Brooklyn, just blocks away from his home. Although Antiq’s death marked yet another gun-related death in the neighborhood, as of Aug. 25 killings were down 26 percent in New York, according to the mayor’s office.
