5 More People Shot In Brooklyn, Hours After 1-Year-Old Boy Gunned Down While Sitting In His Stroller

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Gunfire erupted Monday night in the same borough where a 1-year-old was shot and killed not even 24 hours before.

Police surround a white car with a smashed bumper Monday night outside a motel on Conduit Boulevard in Canarsie, Brooklyn. Investigators believe its passengers abandoned it at around 6:30 p.m. after using it to pull off drive-by shootings of five people on three different blocks, CBS2’s Ali Bauman reported.

All the victims are expected to survive, police said.

The 1-year-old, Davell Gardner Jr., died after being shot in the stomach while sitting in his stroller during a barbecue near a playground in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Sunday night.

No arrests have been made in either case.

Mayor Bill de Blasio held a moment of silence during Monday’s press briefing and said he was “heartbroken” over the child’s death.
