BROOKLYN - Family and friends crowded Grace Funeral Chapel on Friday to pay their respects to Antiq Hennis.

The 16-month-old was fatally shot Sunday night in Brownsville while his parents pushed him in his stroller.

Mourners at the chapel wore shirts bearing Antiq's name.

Police say the shooters were trying to hit Antiq's father, Anthony Hennis. They also say the father has not been cooperating in the search to find who took his son's life, a decision that has outraged the community.
