(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 30 – A 20-year-old woman pushing a stroller with her three-month-old son in a New York street was shot in the head and killed. The Guardian reports it citing the New York Police Department. The victim was taken to the Metropolitan Hospital Center where she died of her injuries. Her baby was unharmed.
At a press conference near the scene on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, New York City Mayor Eric Adams appealed to find the killer. “We will find the person guilty of this horrible crime. We will find him and bring him to justice,” Adams said.
The woman was shot in the head by an armed man, dressed completely in black, who approached her from behind.
No suspects were taken into custody.
The shooting is the latest in a series of attacks, some of them seemingly random, in New York City streets and subways that have left residents with bated breath.
