2 indicted in shooting death of NYC toddler

NEW YORK (AP) — Two men have been indicted in the shooting death of a New York City toddler being pushed in a stroller.

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes says Daquan Breland and Daquan Wright were charged Thursday with murder and weapons possession in the death of 16-month-old Antiq (An-TEEK') Hennis.

A call to the law office representing Wright wasn't immediately returned and it wasn't clear who was representing Breland.

The 23-year-old Breland and 19-year-old Wright were arrested last week in Wilkes-Barre (WILKS'-ba-ree), Pa.

Authorities say Antiq's father Anthony Hennis was pushing him in a stroller Sept. 1 when multiple shots were fired. Aniq was struck once in the head and pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police believe Anthony Hennis was the intended target and the shooting may have been gang-related. They say he hasn't cooperated in the investigation.
