BROWNSVILLE - The two men believed to be behind the fatal shooting of a 1-year-old boy are now in custody and have been charged.

Daquan Breland, 23, and Daquan Wright, 19, were both arrested early Friday morning in Wilkes-Barre, Penn. after a manhunt that spanned three states.

Police say 1-year-old Antiq Hennis was being pushed in a stroller by his father when multiple shots were fired, striking Antiq in the face. The boy was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police believe Anthony Hennis, Antiq's father, was the intended target.

A funeral was held for Antiq Friday night.

Police say the child's father has not been cooperating with investigators, but they will continue to try to obtain information from him.
