A 20-year-old mother was murdered late Wednesday in New York City’s Upper East Side as she was pushing her baby stroller past a park brimming with children.
A male gunman wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants approached the woman around 8:23 pm and “fired a single shot into her head from a very close range,” NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said a press conference later that evening.
The shooter than fled on foot down 95th Street and remained at large as of Thursday morning. The mother meanwhile was transported to a hospital and pronounced dead roughly an hour later. Her 3-month-old baby was unharmed, according to Sewell.
The shooting was witnessed by a number of the children at Samuel Seabury Playground, which reportedly lies across the street from where the shooting occurred.
