A suspect remained at large Thursday morning after a 20-year-old mother was killed while pushing a baby stroller in New York City’s Upper East Side neighborhood.
“We lost a 20 year old woman on the Upper East Side tonight. She was pushing a stroller when a gunman took her life. More guns in our city means more lives lost. It means more babies crying as those who love them lie dead. We cannot allow this epidemic to keep claiming lives,” posted Mayor Eric Adams on Twitter.
From Fox News:
No arrests have been made so far in the fatal close-range shooting of a 20-year-old woman who was pushing a three-month-old infant in a baby stroller in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
As of 6:48 a.m. Thursday, an NYPD spokesperson confirmed to Fox News Digital that no arrests have been made, and the investigation remains ongoing. The identity of the deceased woman is not yet available for release pending proper family notification, the spokesperson added via email.
At a press conference late Wednesday, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said the nature of the relationship, if any, between the at-large suspect and the woman remains under investigation.
Without any more knowledge of the all-black-clad assassin, Adams placed blame on the “over saturation of guns” in the Big Apple, as well as “dangerous people that repeatedly leave our criminal justice system to continue actions like this.” The shooting happened on a sidewalk in front of a public school in an area of Manhattan where billionaires reside on one side of the block, while the other is poverty-stricken.
