Per USA Today, a New York City cookout ended in tragedy Sunday, and police are searching for answers after a 1-year-old was killed in a shooting.
The child, identified by police as Davell Gardner, was shot in the abdomen and taken the hospital police told USA TODAY. He was then taken to a second hospital, where he died.
Two men – one wearing all black, the other wearing black and white – opened fire at the Brooklyn cookout at around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, according to police. Both men had their faces covered and left the scene on foot.
Four people were injured in the shooting, including Davell according to the NYPD. A 36-year-old man was shot in the leg, a 35-year-old man was shot in the groin and a 27-year-old man, who walked to the hospital, was shot in the ankle.
NYPD Chief of Community Affairs Jeffrey Maddrey called on the police and the community to denounce the “disgusting” violence that took place Sunday.
“The baby was with his family enjoying a Sunday night in the summer when someone started shooting,” Maddrey tweeted Monday morning. “Three people were injured, and the baby was killed. This. Must. STOP!”
